The Republic of Sarisburg is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 796 million Sarisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sarisian economy, worth 62.4 trillion Knells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 78,415 Knells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smoking is banned in public areas, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, and a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sarisburg's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sarisburg is ranked 13,585th in the world and 3rd in The Westinorian Intergalactic Alliance for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
