Napa Santa Rosa

Population1.162 billion


The Immamate of Napa Santa Rosa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 1.162 billion Napa Santa Rosans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Napa Santa Rosan economy, worth 23.7 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 20,395 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Napa Santa Rosa's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Napa Santa Rosa is ranked 193,891st in the world and 46th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Highest Average Incomes, with 20,395.68 Standard Monetary Units.
