The Croupier of The Sands Casino is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady Fortune with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.585 billion gamblers enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Law & Order and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the poker table. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient gambling economy, worth 904 trillion chips a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 137,431 chips, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 498,780 per year while the poor average 26,969, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in the poker table, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, t-shirts displaying a photo of Lady Fortune performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Sands Casino's national animal is the gambler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is getting rich quick.

The Sands Casino is ranked 127,504th in the world and 7th in The Sands for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 460 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
