The Deus ex Machina of Republic of salo is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Il Duce with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.416 billion Republics of saloan are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

Harry Potter books are banned, atheists refusing to attend church are heavily fined by the government, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Republic of salo's national animal is the duce, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Duceism, and its currency is the lire.

Republic of salo is ranked 12th in central europe and 109,962nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -26 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
