The Empire of Santa Lucija is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Alexander V with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.782 billion Santa Lucijans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Petersburg. The average income tax rate is 22.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Santa Lucijan economy, worth a remarkable 2,011 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 157,403 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Tsar Alexander V's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBSL Governor goes house hunting, war criminals are given full state funerals, and appliance stores are finding spy cameras embedded in their unboxed merchandise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santa Lucija's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Santa Lucija is ranked 56,962nd in the world and 3rd in Empire of Andrew for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,357.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
