The Republic of Saint Sous is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.055 billion Saint Sousians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Saint Sousian economy, worth 33.4 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,703 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Sous's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
