The Federation of You Sandy Beach is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 207 million Beachgoers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals keep a keen eye out for any attempt to organize such a thing, and ruthlessly crush it. Income tax is unheard of.

The Sandy Beach economy, worth 12.5 trillion whatevers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 60,318 whatevers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 376,514 per year while the poor average 4,118, a ratio of 91.4 to 1.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. You Sandy Beach's national animal is the Sand Dollar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

You Sandy Beach is ranked 116,338th in the world and 308th in The Black Hawks for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,052.76 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
