The State of Santo Antao
“By The People For The People”
Location: Epic Gamer Land
Regional Influence: Hermit
The State of Santo Antao is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 9.216 billion Santo Antaoans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.
The strong Santo Antaoan economy, worth 539 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 58,537 betales, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 373,393 per year while the poor average 3,774, a ratio of 98.9 to 1.
Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, Santo Antao's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the government is slowly introducing social welfare programs, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Santo Antao's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
