OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of San Montagna is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Giorgio Cavallo with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.846 billion San Montagnans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabazio. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth 815 trillion Lires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 212,076 Lires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 128,776th in the world and 144th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 8.58 on the Hayek Index.
