The E-Democracy of United States of Sarjania is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President John Richards with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.609 billion Sarjanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarjanopolis. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sarjanian economy, worth 218 trillion BitSars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,080 BitSars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Sarjania's national animal is the Humpback Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Humanism.

United States of Sarjania is ranked 241,641st in the world and 8,249th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
