The Grand Duchy of Salavas is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Duke Mihai Salavastru with an even hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.162 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Commerce are secondary priorities. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Gambling industries.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, Duke Mihai Salavastru has just been declared ruler of Salavas in an international press conference, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Salavas's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Sigma.
