Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Homotopian Republic of Saint-Sebastian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rosko Alaska with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.058 billion Saints are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonewall. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but sluggish Saintly economy, worth 576 trillion Pink Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 57,363 Pink Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rosko Alaska's mistress is the belle at many state balls, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, movie references are legally admissible in court, and city-dwellers are forcibly moved to farming communes in the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Saint-Sebastian's national animal is the catamount, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saint-Sebastian is ranked 24,546th in the world and 45th in Gay for Largest Black Market, with 4.58 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
