The Friendly Republic of Sensorland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harper Huxley with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.134 billion Sensorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Triumph. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sensorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,562 trillion Emeralds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,092 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sensorians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", tourists call Sensorian beach towns "the fine coastline", and economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sensorland's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is free thought.

Sensorland is ranked 204,301st in the world and 6,374th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -11.7 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
