The Principality of SAH3 is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 321 million SAH3ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 18.7%.

The strong SAH3ian economy, worth 24.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,987 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, many of the unemployed have had the fight taken out of them, and the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SAH3's national animal is the giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SAH3 is ranked 63,860th in the world and 60th in India for Most Developed, scoring 59.91 on the Human Development Index.
