The Republic of San Jose Del Este is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Nicolas Santos with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, soft-spoken computers, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.509 billion JoseOrientaleses are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Jose. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant San Jose Del Estean economy, worth 21.4 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 14,175 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, grandparents tell young ones tales of the good old days when people had cake on their birthday, and wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Jose Del Este's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

San Jose Del Este is ranked 96,091st in the world and 1st in Alianza Latina for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
