Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Homotopian Republic of Saint-Sebastian is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rosko Alaska with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.862 billion Saints hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal 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 underdeveloped Saintly economy, worth 625 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 63,397 Pink Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, the government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Saint-Sebastian's national animal is the catamount, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saint-Sebastian is ranked 179,645th in the world and 357th in Gay for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 7.43 Tourists Per Hour.
