The Homotopian Republic of Saint-Sebastian is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rosko Alaska with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 9.714 billion Saints enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Social Policy, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonewall. The average income tax rate is 1.1%.

The Saintly economy, worth 940 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 96,777 Pink Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Healthcare funding has been cut, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and the ban on cars has been repealed. 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 187,026th in the world and 351st in Gay for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.8 Missed References Per Hour.
