The Holy Empire of Santa-Barbara is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Erron Black with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.505 billion Santa-Barbarans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Law & Order, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jericho. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Santa-Barbaran economy, worth 193 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,612 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, and atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santa-Barbara's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Santa-Barbara is ranked 12,188th in the world and 7th in St Abbaddon for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 2 valid endorsements.
