The country of San Giorgio was named after Saint George. Also known as Joris of Lukia, Geórgios (Laimaic: Γεώργιος), or Georgius (East-Aroman). According to oral tradition, he was a Lysian soldier in the Aroman army of the 4th century CE. As an early follower of Christianity, he was ordered to reject his religious beliefs. When George refused to do so, he was sentenced to death. Because of his inextinguishable faith, Saint George went on to become one of the most revered Christian saints, especially in military circles.
The actual name “George” comes from γεωργός (geōrgós). This means “earth worker” or “farmer”. It is a combination of γῆ (gê, “earth”) and ἔργον (érgon, “work”). This name was evidently quite common in the rural areas of Occidental antiquity.
- The largest island is Saint George. The term Saint George Islands is sometimes used to encompass all of the islands of the present-day countries of San Giorgio and San Jorge.
- Other islands belonging to the Saint George group are
- Allucia (xxx km2)
- BBB (xxx km2) = off the coast of Lungofiome
- CCC (xxx km2) = 3 islands in the Santa Isabel subdivision of San Jorge
- The Saint George Islands are less than five million years old. They were pushed upward by the tectonic subduction of the northward-moving ABC Plate under the XYZ Plate.
- The islands are mostly composed of limestone and volcanic ash over limestone.
- The highest point in the Santa Cruz Islands is on Vanikoro, XXX m (YYY ft).
- The capital city is Sabato.
- Subdivisions (A-Z): Allucia, Atteratosu, Lungofiume, Nuova Cristina, Sabato (capita), Santo Salvatore, Veracroce.
- National parks (A-Z): Altipiano Reserve, Christóbal Coast, Veracroce Reserve.
- (Something about the first Azano-Marenesian settlers. Look at nearby countries such as Ayubi, Damak Var and Bainbridge Islands. Also include the historic Chulo Empire.)
- Some prehistoric coastal people of eastern Azania built ocean-going outrigger canoes known as Tepukei.
- Navigators from the Saint George Islands retained traditional navigation techniques into the 20th century.
- The native languages of the islands are classified as Meteorolan languages, within the Europan subgroup of the Azano-Marenesian language family.
- San Giorgio is an ex-Mantellan colony on the western side of the island of Saint George.
- 23 April 1300 — Mantellan explorers landed on the island of Saint George.
- 1309 — Colony of San Giorgio was established. It encompassed the whole of the island outside a couple Iberic trade cities on the north-east coast.
- Iberos and Mantella had several colonial skirmishes. One of these resulted in Mantella having to sell half of the island of Saint George to Iberos. The Iberics established their own colony of San Jorge.
- 16 November 1898 — San Giorgio declared its independence from the shrinking Mantellan Empire. Great Anglia aided San Giorgio's independence. The revolution ended with Mantella and Iberos recognising San Giorgio's independence on 23 April 1901.
- (WIP. Btw from what I meant by the 'old kingdom' I was thinking San Jorge before the revolution was a kingdom that was largely feudal with Iberos-born aristocrats controlling the colonists on the island.)
- 23 April 1901 — Kingdom of San Giorgio. San Giorgio only had one king, King Andrea the First of Mediuci-Odell. He reigned from 1901 up until his death in January 1922.
- 6 July 1923 — With no royal heirs, San Giorgio transitioned into a republic. However, the old aristocratic plantation families (Barbato, Meduici, and Salvadori) remained incredibly powerful.

Every 5 years there is a general election for the Presidency. At the time of the country's foundation, there were no term limits. However, in the 1960s a two-term term limit was established.
(WIP. List of presidents, as hinted elsewhere. Must have elections every 5 years. Must also count the correct number of members from each political family. Include D'Aprile who didn't finish her second term. After running the maths, this proposal seems to fit the proposed lore. San Giorgio, although calls itself a republic, is more-so the stomping grounds of the Barbato, Mediuci, and Salvadori houses. The people themselves are well treated under the pretence that healthy and content employees are better than the sick and dying.)
- Mr Ignacio Barbato (1922-1932; reelected)
- Mr $Firstname Mediuci (1932-1947; reelected)
- Mr $Firstname Barbato (1947-1962; three terms because of global conflicts; term limits established)
- Mr $Firstname Salvadori (1962-1972; reelected)
- Mr $Firstname Mediuci (1972-1982; reelected)
- Mrs Barbara Salvadori (1982-1987; single term; 1980s crisis)
- Mr $Firstname Mediuci (1987-1992; single term; 1980s crisis)
- Mr $Firstname Barbato (1992-1997; single term; 1990s crisis)
- Mrs Diana D'Aprile (1997-2006; reelected; only 9 years in office)
- Mr Alvise Barbato (2006-2007; single term; former VP of D'Aprile)
- Mr $Firstname Mediuci (2007-2017; reelected)
- Mr $Firstname Barbato (2017-2022; single term)
- Mr Celso Salvadori (2022-present)
Of the 19 elections and 13 presidencies, 12 of them have come from only 3 families: the House of Barbato (5 presidents), the House of Mediuci (4), and the House of Salvadori (3). The current president, Celso Salvadori, was publicly tutored under Alvise Barbato who was the 10th president of San Giorgio and now Celso Salvadori's own Vice President. San Giorgio's only king, Andrea the First, was from both the Houses of Mediuci and Odell via his father and mother, respectfully. The only president not to come from one of the three presidential dynasties was Diana D'Aprile the 9th President of San Giorgio who held office for 9 years, forgoing her final year in office due to the death of her husband.
- Look at Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico.
- San Giorgio is richer than San Jorge, because they extract more oil and have less rules and regulations concerning environmental protection.
