El Principado de la Santa Cruz

Population284 million


The Theocracy of El Principado de la Santa Cruz is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 284 million Santacruceros are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Santacrucero economy, worth 13.5 trillion Doradoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 47,683 Doradoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bris parties are all the rage, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, ceremonial zweihänders are used in holy rituals, and family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. El Principado de la Santa Cruz's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

El Principado de la Santa Cruz is ranked 214,580th in the world and 54th in APSIA for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -13.42 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
