The Lily Bud of Sakinestan is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 569 million Sakinestanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sakinestanian economy, worth 20.1 trillion Flower Pedals a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,354 Flower Pedals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sakinestan's national animal is the Goose.

Sakinestan is ranked 107,425th in the world and 31st in Lily for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,155.03 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
