The Sanese people (三國人 Sangokujin?) are an ethnic group native to Okaiken.[1][2][3][4][5] Sanese make up 98.5% of the total population of their country.[6] Worldwide, approximately 85 million people are of Sanese descent; of these, approximately 80 million are residents of Okaiken. People of Sanese ancestry who live in other countries are referred to as sankeijin (三系人?). The term ethnic Sanese may also be used in some contexts to refer to a locus of ethnic groups including the Yoroi and Atsu.

Language

The Sanese language is a Minic language that is treated as a language isolate; it is also related to the Ogasawara languages, and both are sometimes suggested to be part of the proposed Indic language family. The Sanese language has a tripartite writing system using Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Domestic Sanese people use primarily Sanese for daily interaction. The adult literacy rate in Okaiken exceeds 99%.[7]
