San Gavino

Population3.359 billion

LeaderEl Jefe


The Grand Empire of San Gavino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by El Jefe with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.359 billion Gavinoans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironmont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.3%.

The frighteningly efficient San Gavinoan economy, worth 534 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,188 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and agricultural employees work for peanuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Gavino's national animal is the Charger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

San Gavino is ranked 41,599th in the world and 1,992nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 64.3 Effective Tax Rate.
