The Grand Duchy of San Monteriano is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Caterina I with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.328 billion San Monteriani are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Monteriano. The average income tax rate is 61%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, discarded pennies litter the streets, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Monteriano's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the lozenge.

San Monteriano is ranked 58th in The Commonwealth of Crowns and 31,713th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 8 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
