The Deus ex Machina of Republic of salo is a colossal, devout 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 8.004 billion, 7.954 billion of whom are zombies, 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 46%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, and skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines. 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 1st in central europe and 1,959th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Republic of salo is currently considering its options.
