Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Divine Republic of Sanctaria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mark Kindle with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.983 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctus. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sanctarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,131 trillion pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,930 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Sanctus Times is sold out, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and all tariffs have been abolished. 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 51st in International Democratic Union and 120,940th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -20 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
