San Gavino

Population3.183 billion

LeaderEl Jefe


The Grand Empire of San Gavino is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by El Jefe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.183 billion Gavinoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironmont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.2%.

The frighteningly efficient San Gavinoan economy, worth 508 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,789 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sheep-like political loyalists repeat the mantra "one wheel bad, three wheels good", government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Gavino's national animal is the Charger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

San Gavino is ranked 32,845th in the world and 1,835th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,917.65 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
