The United Socialist States of St Guilders Gate is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Augustus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 903 million St Guilders Gateans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Sabastian. The average income tax rate is 68.9%.

The all-consuming St Guilders Gatean economy, worth 97.1 trillion Pesos a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 107,525 Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement, moonshine has made a resurgence, and state-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St Guilders Gate's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

St Guilders Gate is ranked 198,817th in the world and 8,669th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 57.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
