The Unicameral Federal Republic of St Saratoga is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Jonathan Stewart with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, aversion to nipples, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.221 billion Saratogans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rogerbei. The average income tax rate is 61.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Saratogan economy, worth a remarkable 5,311 trillion Kredits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 250,295 Kredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St Saratoga's national animal is the Beavers, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hoot.

St Saratoga is ranked 102,013th in the world and 8th in New Coalition of Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.44 on the Rand Index.
