The Game Administrator's Realm of SalusaSecondus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shaddam Corrino III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.92 billion SalusaSeconders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lion's Head. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Salusan economy, worth a remarkable 4,040 trillion solari 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 an impressive 150,104 solari, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace, soldiers are equipped with multi-million solaris battlesuits, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. SalusaSecondus's national animal is the sardaukar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Confusionism.
