Rio Santo

Population6.025 billion

CapitalEl Toro
LeaderLeonard Cruz Rivera


The Republic of Rio Santo is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leonard Cruz Rivera with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.025 billion Rioneros enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Toro. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rionero economy, worth 452 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,078 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rio Santo's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rio Santo is ranked 140,132nd in the world and 19th in United Nations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
