The Federal Republic of Sanktura is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 368 million Sankturans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 53.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Sankturan economy, worth 10.9 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,717 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants, and the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanktura's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
