The Italian Kingdom of Sarderistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Umberto III with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.789 billion Italians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 68.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sarderistanian economy, worth 297 trillion Lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 106,615 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sarderistan's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Sarderistan is ranked 42,922nd in the world and 2nd in The Hope Federation for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.64 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
