Is it possible to default to real field?

It appears that Sage defaults symbolic variables to the complex field. This is passed along to Maxima, eventually triggering segfaults. Given that all of my variables are real, is it possible to default the symbolic domain to the real field BEFORE asking any calculations of Maxima?
