Saint Roberts

Population1.047 billion

The Commonwealth of Saint Roberts is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Presidium with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.047 billion Commonwealthers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saints City. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Robertsian economy, worth 140 trillion credits a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,121 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, Saints City's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, and exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles. Crime is totally unknown. Saint Roberts's national animal is the Red Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is atheism.

Saint Roberts is ranked 158,186th in the world and 7,363rd in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 280.65 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
