Game Administrator

The Game Administrator's Realm of SalusaSecondus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shaddam Corrino III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its surprisingly youthful workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.743 billion SalusaSeconders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lion's Head. The average income tax rate is 5.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Salusan economy, worth a remarkable 2,644 trillion solari a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,893 solari, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around The Lion's Head, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. SalusaSecondus's national animal is the sardaukar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Confusionism.

SalusaSecondus is ranked 10th in The Cuckoos Egg and 97,033rd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 2 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
