The Republic of San Montagna is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Giorgio Cavallo with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.565 billion San Montagnans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabazio. The average income tax rate is 38.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth 970 trillion Lires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 212,600 Lires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. San Montagna's national animal is the Cool animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

San Montagna is ranked 1,405th in the world and 15th in The Western Isles for Most Influential, scoring 56,179 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
