The Dauphiné of Saint-Auguste is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dauphine Stéphanie I with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.731 billion Saint-Augustines live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Les Trois-Îlets. The average income tax rate is 16.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint-Augustine economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion Augustine Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 134,953 Augustine Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, and small shoes often wash up on the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Saint-Auguste's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Saint-Auguste is ranked 129,899th in the world and 41st in The Commonwealth Society for Lowest Crime Rates, with 62.14 law-abiding acts per hour.
