The Republic of San Montagna is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Giorgio Cavallo with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.123 billion San Montagnans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabazio. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,849 trillion Lires a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 227,644 Lires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, what happens in court stays in court, exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Montagna's national animal is the Cool animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

San Montagna is ranked 157,971st in the world and 75th in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.35 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
