The Lacking of HumanSanity is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.504 billion San3 Humans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of D3mocratia. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient HumanSanityian economy, worth a remarkable 2,571 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,974 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HumanSanity's national animal is the My Littl3 Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

HumanSanity is ranked 237,742nd in the world and 7,952nd in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13.77 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
