Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Divine Republic of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mark Kindle with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.086 billion Sanctarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sanctarian economy, worth 993 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,927 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', a flood of mandatory divorces burden the courts, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and pony-derived products are greasing the wheels of industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sanctaria's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Sanctaria is ranked 12th in International Democratic Union and 24,754th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 23 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
