The United States of The Santland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by John Santland Lectus with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and feral children. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.525 billion Santec 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santes Capitula. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient a citizen of the all mighty nation economy, worth 300 trillion Santec Kroners a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 119,136 Santec Kroners, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 416,564 per year while the poor average 24,762, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.

Police frequently raid drugstores in search of contraband bottles of New Spice aftershave, the government seizes all major gold finds, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Santland's national animal is the Iron Bruin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Santisycism.

The Santland is ranked 142,658th in the world and 21st in Lezra for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 25.85 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
