Santorini is a small, developing, and young nation with citizens primarily of Mixed ethnicity whose religion is Christianity. The citizens of Santorini work diligently to produce Wheat and Pigs as tradable resources for their nation.
Plans are on the way within Santorini to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Santorini allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Santorini believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Santorini will not make deals with another country that has a history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.

Stock MarketEditSantorini's citizens enjoyed a financial revolution on April 1, 2010 with the launch of the Nation's Central Stock Exchange (CSX). Utilizing advanced technology and financial expertise, Santorini Denizens set forth the plans to create a central hub to the Nations widespread and varying Regional Stock Exchanges (RSX). One that came to fruition on in rapid time due to the Nations dedicated Government and committed Citizens towards continued progress.
Under a now unified system, all RSXs report to the CSX. In addition, all transactions pass through CSX automated-systems for approval at a maximum rate of 10,000,000 Transactions per second. In the event that threshold is exceeded, a Prority Rule Based System would be triggered that takes over transactions until volume returns to normal.
The Building is a gleaming symbol of Santorini's remarkable advancements and rapid continued success, and proudly resides in the Nation's Capital.
Social Security SystemEditOn July 16, 2010Santorini entered a new age of social structure with the development of a Social Security System for its entire Nation. Its citizens can now enjoy their work life without fear of not being cared for in their retirement. They will be cared for in return for the services they provided to our Nation throughout their life. They will be rewarded based on a scale that equates their terms of service in conjunction with their levels of contributions throughout the Years.
Citizens who enroll in the Social Security System program will be required to choose a level of their paychecks that they feel comfortable contributing towards their retirement funds. Once they reach the retirement age of 60 Years, they will be eligible to begin claims of Social Security Funds they have accumulated.
It will be distributed via a fixed amount over their remaining Years, all at an un-taxed rate. We hope that these new social endeavors will encourage the continued growth of our citizens and their financial security.
Although a peaceful Nation at heart, Santorini employs a Military force to defend its Nation, and keep order within its Society. Striving to maintain the right balance between a definitive Military presence, and a non-overwhelming force over its people, Santorini aims to progress.
FABEditThe Armed Forces of Santorini reached a new milestone on May 13, 2010 when the Joint Chiefs of Staff christened the newly constructed Foreign AirForce Base. It will allow the Santorini AirForce to extend their projection of power to other areas of the globe in efforts to protect the sovereign name and world peace. We are also pleased to announce on this great day, that the members of the Santorini AirForce have dubbed the Foreign AirForce Base 'The Hornet's Hive', with a motto of "We Fly Like A Butterfly, and Sting Like a Bee".
The Nation is proud to be able to better defend its people's name, and also now be able to carry on diplomatic missions with better protection behind it. This major step in Military upgrade is but the first ofn many, that will ensure Santorini and its Allies are prepared for many potential scenarios that may be presented. We look forward to working with our Allies in the Basketball Ninjas to further strengthen our resolve, and represent the mantra of our combined philosophies.
The Nation of Santorini has not yet been actively, directly or indirectly involved in any major wars. As a member of the BN Academy (a Protectorate of the Basketball Ninjas Alliance), Santorini is currently a non-Offensive Nation.
Nova Blue vs Polar NationEdit
On November 20, 2009, less than a month's membership into the BN Academy, member Max Power (Kuraland) was Tech Raided by the micro-Alliance Alien Species, consisting of The Polar Nation and ALTERNATION. A number of external Nations were also blitzed in their raids. A call to arms was sent through the BN Academy ranks. Within hours, a full-force coordinated counterattack (known as Operation Pick 'n Roll), was launched consisting of BN Academy members Nova Blue (Santorini), Schad (Schadsylvania), and Shaazzam (Curriedom). In later stages, Kuraland was also able to exact revenge, and retake any raided resources from the rogue Nation.
Aftermath: Santorini looted 15.903 tech level, 20.26 miles of land area, and other financial spoils of war. The Polar Nation NS was reduced to less than half, upon which a Peace Offer was sent out (
which has yet to be read/accepted, Peace accepted on November 24, 2009). As a whole, the coordinated four Nation counterattack decimated The Polar Nation, and was a resounding success in defending Kuraland and the BN Academy.

- It should also be noted that at this stage The Polar Nation was abandones by his former Alliance mate after the counterattacks by BN Academy and the other external Nations they blitzed.
