The Federation of Saarkon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Kleben Wessek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.397 billion Saarkonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saarkon City. The average income tax rate is 52.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Saarkonian economy, worth 397 trillion saarks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 165,908 saarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, Saarkonian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime is totally unknown. Saarkon's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Saarkon is ranked 7,466th in the world and 109th in Europeia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.67 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
