The Commonwealth of Saku Han Union is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President McGillis Fareed with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.754 billion Saku Han Unionians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tekketsu. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Saku Han Unionian economy, worth 288 trillion Union Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,715 Union Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saku Han Union's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saku Han Union is ranked 142,763rd in the world and 5,591st in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26.2 on the Hayek Index.
