Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Duchy of San Monteriano is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Caterina I with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.218 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.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Monteriano. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped San Monteriani economy, worth 384 trillion lozenges a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,603 lozenges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

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. San Monteriano's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

San Monteriano is ranked 19th in The Commonwealth of Crowns and 30,482nd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 26 Dawkins.
