The Federal Republic of Santa Rosa Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 228 million Santa Rosa Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Santa Rosa Islander economy, worth 14.2 trillion Santa Rosa dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 62,495 Santa Rosa dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime is relatively low. Santa Rosa Islands's national animal is the Puma, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
