The United Kingdom of Sasten is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Renadt II with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.803 billion Sastennites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azarai. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sastennic economy, worth a remarkable 6,807 trillion Ezrets 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 382,362 Ezrets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, high school bands practice by moonlight, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sasten's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sasten is ranked 2,147th in the world and 723rd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 35,735 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
