The South-South Member Nation of Santulanum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Most Honourable Sahib Mikael Oresama with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.239 billion Santulans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Biidanagaram. The average income tax rate is 40.5%.

The all-consuming Santulan economy, worth 339 trillion Doges a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 104,810 Doges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Santulanum's national animal is the White Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ecumenism.

Santulanum is ranked 19,806th in the world and 578th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 75.5 on the Human Development Index.
