The Incorporated States of Santa Rosa Islands is a huge, safe nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 657 million Santa Rosa Islanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cidade de Santa Rosa. The average income tax rate is 21.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Santa Rosa Islander economy, worth 46.6 trillion Marino reais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,995 Marino reais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime is totally unknown. Santa Rosa Islands's national animal is the Reddish hermit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Santa Rosa Islands is ranked 68,884th in the world and 3,213th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 91.12 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
