The United Duchy of Santa Marana is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Giovanni I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.827 billion Maranese 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 government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venitana. The average income tax rate is 26.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Maranese economy, worth 131 trillion meteris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 72,139 meteris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hell is not always other people, document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. Crime is totally unknown. Santa Marana's national animal is the The White Lined Fox and its national religion is Gaunism.

Santa Marana is ranked 77,777th in the world and 66th in Thaecia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
