The Arctic Fjords of Saransh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Doctor with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.854 billion Saranshians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saranshian economy, worth 489 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,866 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trespassers entering Doctor's office are immediately vaporized, Doctor has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime is totally unknown. Saransh's national animal is the Fairie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saransh is ranked 68,587th in the world and 1,944th in the West Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 59.26 Insults Per Minute.
