The Kingdom of Santamar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nalyk Kavarani with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.696 billion 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortaleza. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Santamarian economy, worth 623 trillion Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,404 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The practice of capital punishment proves divisive, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Santamar are famed for their reasonable volume levels, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Santamar is ranked 155,593rd in the world and 138th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 59.81 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
