The Republic of Santalcine is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.36 billion Santalcineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montcada. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Santalcinean economy, worth 150 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 63,697 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santalcine's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
