San Orono

Population2.25 billion

LeaderPresident Nelson

Animalgolden retriever

The Peoples Republic of San Orono is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Nelson with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.25 billion San Oronians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damariscotta. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient San Oronian economy, worth 296 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 131,642 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, the military struggles with recruitment, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown. San Orono's national animal is the golden retriever, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

San Orono is ranked 97,301st in the world and 4,068th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,008.13 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
