The Federal Republic of Santos-Dominius is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Acting President Donald Verbloem with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.65 billion Santo-Dominians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Friberne. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Santo-Dominian economy, worth a remarkable 1,310 trillion SD Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,101 SD Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', Friberne spends billions upgrading public transport, the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, and children searching for cat videos must watch dogs in equal proportion. 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 269,977th in the world and 5,841st in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -797.9 on the Hayek Index.
