The Autocracy of Saliba is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 23.271 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 secondary priorities. 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.

Abortions are routinely performed in Saliba's hospitals, 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, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 38th in Antarctica and 49,316th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 99 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
