The Federal Republic of Santos-Dominius is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Paul Goldberg with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.807 billion Santo-Dominians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaligfontein. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Santo-Dominian economy, worth 368 trillion SD Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,107 SD Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santos-Dominius's national animal is the Rainbow Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Santos-Dominius is ranked 203,236th in the world and 5,699th in the West Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.55 Crimes Per Hour.
