OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Autocracy of Saliba is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.408 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and the Environment are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 96%. 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.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. 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 115,863rd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
