The Social Liberal Democracy of Sail Nation is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Somebody with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.779 billion Sailors 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boatopia. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saili economy, worth 206 trillion Knots a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,325 Knots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sail Nation's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Sail Nation is ranked 148,645th in the world and 27th in Lorania for Most Extreme, scoring 14.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
