The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 22.895 billion Sanctarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,118 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,529 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sanctaria.

Sanctaria is ranked 70,824th in the world and 46th in International Democratic Union for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51.62 Whatever.
