Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Divine Republic of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mark Kindle with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.509 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 949 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 56th in International Democratic Union and 113,448th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 0 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
