The United States of Santo Espirito is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and public floggings. The hard-working, devout population of 495 million Santo Espiritoans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Derrota. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Santo Espírito Espiritoan economy, worth 56.3 trillion Machadinhos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,663 Machadinhos, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Santo Espírito Espiritoan Space Agency, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Santo Espirito's national animal is the Cachorro Caramelo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Santo Espirito is ranked 174,183rd in the world and 4th in RIUVV for Largest Populations, with 495 million Capita.
