The United Socialist States of Saybel is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 489 million Saybelians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venalia. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Saybelian economy, worth 38.1 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,869 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saybel's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saybel is ranked 197,254th in the world and 1,950th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.22 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
