The Republic of Santiago Arroyo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mark Santiago de Tagle with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.812 billion Arroyos enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ricci de Tagle. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arroyo economy, worth 274 trillion Arroyan pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,248 Arroyan pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santiago Arroyo's national animal is the Amphicoelias, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Santiago Arroyo is ranked 4,858th in the world and 146th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,567.31 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
