New Sanet

Population760 million

CapitalMount Nysa


The Dominion of New Sanet is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Polydorus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 760 million New Sanetians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Nysa. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Sanetian economy, worth 70.2 trillion Thyrsuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 92,394 Thyrsuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, a video of Polydorus wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and the children of New Sanet are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Sanet's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Sanet is ranked 231,641st in the world and 7,892nd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.11 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
