The Country of Sint Maarten is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the States of Sint Maarten with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 21.21 billion Sint Maartenians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philipsburg. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Sint Maartenian economy, worth 505 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,842 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gambling is outlawed, Sint Maarten has designated Philipsburg as its capital city, the States of Sint Maarten has just been declared ruler of Sint Maarten in an international press conference, and the Remonstrant Brotherhood has been named as Sint Maarten's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sint Maarten's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Remonstrant Brotherhood.

Sint Maarten is ranked 193,826th in the world and 1st in Curacao and Dependencies for Most Patriotic, with 5.85 flags saluted per person per day.
