The Kingdom of Santa Lucia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lucio Malfoy with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 2.308 billion Lucianoes are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiger City. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Santa Lucian economy, worth 160 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,740 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', vaccinations are mandatory, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santa Lucia's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catolic Church.
