The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 19.843 billion Sanctarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 77.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,930 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,281 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sanctaria.

Sanctaria is ranked 5,897th in the world and 24th in International Democratic Union for Most Pacifist, with 142.79 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
