The Commonwealth of Saint Roberts is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Presidium with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.25 billion Commonwealthers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saints City. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Saint Robertsian economy, worth 174 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,450 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Presidium's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, the government is avowedly secular, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and the Saint Robertsian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is totally unknown. Saint Roberts's national animal is the Red Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is agnosticism.
