The Socialist Federation of Saralonia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Provisional National Assembly with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 5.269 billion Saralonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saralonia City. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Saralonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,132 trillion Saralonian Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 214,867 Saralonian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Reassembling shredded papers is the highlight of a spy's day, naval armadas borrow their formations from synchronized swimming handbooks, enemy agents often find themselves caught in a bind, and tourists ask to stay in the same pleasant accommodations where foreign prisoners are kept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saralonia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saralonia is ranked 222,075th in the world and 111th in Latinoamerica Libre for Least Corrupt Governments, with 37.64 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
