The Republic of San Jose Del Este is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nicolas Santos with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.287 billion JoseOrientaleses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Jose. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient San Jose Del Estean economy, worth 150 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 Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 45,828 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 155,755th in the world and 5,738th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
