The Principality of Sacal is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.723 billion Sacalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacalia. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sacalian economy, worth 168 trillion Shells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 97,608 Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lavish state dinners in Sacalia are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sacal's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sacal is ranked 88,305th in the world and 3,197th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,487.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
