The Holy Duchy of Saint Richelieu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Maria I with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.752 billion Saint Richelians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bihan Arvor. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Saint Richelian economy, worth 154 trillion SR Krowns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,217 SR Krowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Richelieu's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
