Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Divine Republic of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mark Kindle with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.34 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 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sanctarian economy, worth 903 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 73,216 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', a flood of mandatory divorces burden the courts, and punitive tariffs protect local 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 73rd in International Democratic Union and 118,463rd in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
