The Fascist-Nationalist Empire of Santa Monica Order is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 581 million Santa Monica Order peoples are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samonerica. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Santa Monica Orderian economy, worth 51.5 trillion Monican Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 88,640 Monican Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, the term "Native Santa Monica Order People" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, people think "siege mentality" is a positive trait, and postcards from Santa Monica Orderian driving test centres are popular souvenirs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santa Monica Order's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Santa Monica Order is ranked 35,174th in the world and 3rd in The New Iron Order for Largest Governments, scoring 20.93 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
