The Free Land of Saimatsu is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Maeve III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.703 billion Saimatsuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bakashi. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saimatsuan economy, worth 199 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,048 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saimatsu's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saimatsu is ranked 16,352nd in the world and 717th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,414.79 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
