The Spanish Sultanate of Sainoland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan Selim II with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.38 billion Sainoes are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hispania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The all-consuming Sainolandian economy, worth 148 trillion Pesetas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 107,332 Pesetas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 373,339 per year while the poor average 22,487, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.

The government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, it's illegal to exterminate cockroaches, and subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sainoland's national animal is the Black Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Sainoland is ranked 98,149th in the world and 214th in Thaecia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,152.37 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
