The Autocracy of Saliba is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 23.486 billion Salibans 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 Law & Order, although the Environment and Education are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 97%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saliba's national animal is the toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the gold nugget.

Saliba is ranked 55th in Antarctica and 108,501st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -17 on the Hayek Index.
