Saint Sandia

Population32 million

AnimalPetensice assassin

The Republic of Saint Sandia is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The cynical population of 32 million Sandlanders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Saint Sandian economy, worth 1.46 trillion Orocoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,537 Orocoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Sandia's national animal is the Petensice assassin.

Saint Sandia is ranked 135,309th in the world and 5,263rd in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,418.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
