The United Federation of Sawism is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sleet Concord with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and avant-garde cinema. The democratic, devout population of 2.915 billion Sawists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mantle. The average income tax rate is 41.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sawtanist economy, worth 351 trillion Liens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,517 Liens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and childish pranks are no laughing matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sawism's national animal is the Giant Flying Nevermore, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sawism.

Sawism is ranked 111,627th in the world and 13th in Amalgamated Federation for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,992.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
