The Deus ex Machina of Republic of salo is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Il Duce with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.823 billion 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 39%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

The Great Republic of salo Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region, euthanasia is illegal, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and drunk drivers are sentenced to death. 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 2nd in central europe and 2,089th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
