San Montagna

Population10.874 billion


AnimalCool animal

The Republic of San Montagna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 10.874 billion San Montagnans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabazio. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth a remarkable 2,566 trillion Lires a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,057 Lires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, the housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, and tax avoidance is a serious affair. 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 3,341st in the world and 6th in The Western Isles for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 11,052.17 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
