San Cardero

The Armed Republic of San Cardero is a very large, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 119 million San Carderoans 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient San Carderoan economy, worth 4.70 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,523 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens' names are redacted on their IDs for national security, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, holidays are regarded as the most miserable time of the year, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Cardero's national animal is the Chad Pigeons , which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

San Cardero is ranked 204,822nd in the world and 5,434th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 119 million Capita.
