The Friendly Republic of Sensorland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Harper Huxley with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.99 billion Sensorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Triumph. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sensorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,007 trillion Emeralds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,701 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sensorland's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is free thought.

Sensorland is ranked 188,027th in the world and 4,240th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.76 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
