The Republic of San Montagna is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Giorgio Cavallo with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.143 billion San Montagnans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabazio. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,688 trillion Lires a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,334 Lires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, adulthood begins with the creation of an email account, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Montagna's national animal is the Cool animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

San Montagna is ranked 161,250th in the world and 125th in The Western Isles for Most Politically Free, scoring 40.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
