Los Santos is a small country that is relatively close to Clint City. Like Balgenheim and the Northern Mountains, it has been featured in the bios of many of the cards. It wasn't give much acclaim until the arrival of the Huracan clan.
Judging by the name, Los Santos obviously has a heavy Spanish theme to it (leaning towards Mexican). According to Florida Jane's bio, it is also well known for its valuable treasures and for being the birthplace of the Huracan clan. In Lumber Jack and El Kaktus's profile, it's implied that Los Santos is a Tolatarian state. That was until Noctezuma single-handedly took down their government. However, Cage Troy's profile stated that some aspects of the Los Santos regime are still in practice, even after Noctezuma took it down. In which Cage Troy was set to be executed for a crime he did not commit (mostly due to Los Santos' corrupted legal system).
Both Kinichaw and El Divino's bios mention how Aztec-eske ritual sacrifices have been banned (Kinichaw) and being a possible agent of the gods (El Divino) suggests that it is possible that Los Santos is a pagan country. The country also is known not to be the most accepting of disabled people, treating them like second class citizens (Fuerza Ciega).
Lost Santos' enviornment contains a mix of both deserts (for El Kaktus' cactuses) and jungles. The jungles are home to the country's ancient ruins and rare plants like the Atouine mountain flower (mentioned in one of Krazan's comeback announcements).
