The Party Town of Glass and Santiago is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.362 billion Glass and Santiagoans 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glass and Santiago City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Glass and Santiagoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,131 trillion Santis 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 Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 153,638 Santis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, religious citizens are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, and concussed German Shepherdball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is totally unknown. Glass and Santiago's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nuthin.

Glass and Santiago is ranked 169,449th in the world and 757th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -23.87 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
