The Queen's State of Sou Salva is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.542 billion Sou Salvans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Law & Order and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and none has been named as Sou Salva's national religion. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sou Salva's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.

Sou Salva is ranked 6th in Japvia and 13,479th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 58 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
