A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style

At the last census in 2021, Mal Sanea had a population of 1.6 million. 1,1 million live in the capital Sul Sanea, the rest in small cities and towns along the coastline and in the fertile plains of inner Mal Sanea.

After more than twenty years of stagnation in the birth rate as a result of financial crises, economic stagnation and climate crisis, the population is growing again thanks to the social and economic reforms at local and state level. Education reform and innovation policies have led to a fast growth of the tertiary and quaternary sectors. Around 35 percent of the workforce works in ICT related professions and services.

The population consists of 63 per cent Saneans, the ethnic minorities of the Poldonians, Maldurians and and Colots build the rest of the population. The three official languages with equal status are Sanean, Poldonian and Maldonian. Only 5.000 persons are considered to speak Colotte. [Religion to be done]

Infrastructure: Mal Sanea has a highly developed railway system run by the state owned company Spurtwegen. It provides easy and fast access to all parts of the country. [to be continued]
