The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.2 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 6,571 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 382,065 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, Sastennic watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. 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 20,496th in the world and 925th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,777.31 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
