The Republic of Sak524 is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its digital currency, parental licensing program, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, devout population of 764 million Sak524ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 33.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sak524ian economy, worth 48.7 trillion chips a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,727 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, Sak524 Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sak524's national animal is the sloth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sak524 is ranked 61,222nd in the world and 234th in The free society of Tic Tacs for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
