The Serene Islands of Rebellious Saints is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Montegu Sylver with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.637 billion Rebellious saints 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 large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halfmoon Wood. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint economy, worth 531 trillion Indulgences a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,003 Indulgences, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, Montegu Sylver's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum. Crime is totally unknown. Rebellious Saints's national animal is the weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Rebellious Saints is ranked 129,521st in the world and 5,765th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 21.11 on the Rand Index.
