The Republic of San Montagna is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Giorgio Cavallo with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.783 billion San Montagnans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Montagnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,601 trillion Lires a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,033 Lires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Little children cry as their rainbow drawings are seized by the Straight-Thought Police, edutainment video games are taking San Montagna's students to the next level, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Sabazio" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 17,022nd in the world and 43rd in The Western Isles for Largest Governments, scoring 27.42 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
