San Gavino

Population1.434 billion



The Republic of San Gavino is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.434 billion Gavinoans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironmont. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Gavinoan economy, worth 151 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 105,483 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and a third of Gavinoans are e-certified CEOs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Gavino's national animal is the Mustang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

San Gavino is ranked 139,096th in the world and 7,123rd in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 7.45 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
