The Divine Federation of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Charlene Hendry with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 21.234 billion Sanctarians 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 79.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,065 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,271 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sanctaria.

Sanctaria is ranked 71,520th in the world and 26th in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51.67 on the Rand Index.
