“los infieles pagarán con sus vidas” Úrsula Corbero
|Category: Right-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Superpower
Location: Grave yard
The Spanish Dictatorship of Sainoland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Úrsula Corbero with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, aversion to nipples, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.917 billion Sainoes are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hispania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.
The all-consuming Sainolandian economy, worth 316 trillion Pesetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,400 Pesetas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 344,241 per year while the poor average 26,006, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.
Hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, the Sainoland Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, euthanasia is legal, and anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sainoland's national animal is the Black Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic Christianity.
