The 🄿🅁🄾🅄🄳 🄱🄾🅈🅂 of Saint Domingo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by 𝔻𝕠𝕟𝕒𝕝𝕕 𝕋𝕣𝕦𝕞𝕡 with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.437 billion 𝕊𝕒𝕚𝕟𝕥𝕤 are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝕷𝖔𝖘 𝕾𝖆𝖎𝖓𝖙𝖔𝖘. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.0%.
The frighteningly efficient 𝕯𝖔𝖒𝖎𝖓𝖌𝖔𝖓𝖎𝖆𝖓 economy, worth a remarkable 3,071 trillion 𝕕𝕠𝕝𝕝𝕒𝕣𝕪𝕕𝕠𝕠s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 294,290 𝕕𝕠𝕝𝕝𝕒𝕣𝕪𝕕𝕠𝕠s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,062,304 per year while the poor average 58,239, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.
The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit", and the endangered saltwater humpback 𝕬𝖓𝖙𝖊𝖈𝖍𝖎𝖓𝖚𝖘 is only seen in captivity programs. Crime is totally unknown. Saint Domingo's national animal is the 𝕬𝖓𝖙𝖊𝖈𝖍𝖎𝖓𝖚𝖘, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tʜᴇ Aʀᴛ ᴏғ ᴛʜᴇ Dᴇᴀʟ.
