The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful population of 21.215 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azarai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sastennic economy, worth a remarkable 8,186 trillion Ezrets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 385,896 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and barbers who trim a few inches of hair bill the government for their labor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sasten's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sasten is ranked 232,690th in the world and 8,907th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 36 Meters Of Sunlight.
