The Social Republic of Cisalpina is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Monica Galeazzo with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.04 billion Cisalpines are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenna. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Cisalpinan economy, worth 26.9 trillion Soldis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 25,843 Soldis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, nine out of ten citizens of Cisalpina answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and Monica Galeazzo has just been declared ruler of Cisalpina in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cisalpina's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cisalpina is ranked 217,300th in the world and 31st in The Social Liberal Union for Most Conservative, scoring 32.82 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
