OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Salonikum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wolf with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 22.784 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salonikum City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown. Salonikum's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the gratz.

Salonikum is ranked 3,787th in Lazarus and 122,265th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -17 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
