Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend Cards


Population829 million


The Community of Sahbido is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 829 million Sahbidoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sahbidoan economy, worth 52.7 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 63,587 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sahbido's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sahbido is ranked 238,737th in the world and 9,087th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -15.56 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
