Saint Christinium

Population1.27 billion

CapitalBanana City


The Empire of Saint Christinium is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Me with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.27 billion Saint Christiniumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Banana City. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Christiniumian economy, worth 140 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 110,624 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Christinium's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saint Christinium is ranked 89,307th in the world and 3,529th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 135,961 Standard Monetary Units.
