The Deus ex Machina of Republic of salo is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Il Duce with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.622 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.

Atheists refusing to attend church are heavily fined by the government, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods. 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 5th in central europe and 18,996th in the world for Safest, scoring 210.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
