The University of California Santa Cruz is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by George R Blumenthal with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.625 billion California Santa Cruzians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Administration Office. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient California Santa Cruzian economy, worth a remarkable 1,267 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,912 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, teenagers often ask adults to buy them Maxtopian Grass from government-run recreational drug stores, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied fiat slug, and ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties. Crime is totally unknown. California Santa Cruz's national animal is the fiat slug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Education.

California Santa Cruz is ranked 40,210th in the world and 2nd in Santa Cruz for Largest Populations, with 8.62 billion capita.
