The Republic of Screaming Saint is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Screaming Saint with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.423 billion Screaming Saintians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salvation. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the government pours millions of Drakims into rehabilitation programs annually, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Screaming Saint's national animal is the Zerglings, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Drakim.
