The Holy Empire of Santamar is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 652 million Santamarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matancera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.5%.

The all-consuming Santamarian economy, worth 73.6 trillion Crosses a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 112,952 Crosses, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, the government has implemented minimum wage laws, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, and computers have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santamar's national animal is the Condor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Santamar is ranked 30,234th in the world and 1,958th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 1,902.64 milliStalins.
