OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Screaming Saint is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Screaming Saint with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 6.474 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.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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.

Screaming Saint is ranked 814th in 10000 Islands and 88,281st in the world for Best Weather, with -9 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
