Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anablephobia of Straight Arm Salute is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Lord Sir Supreme Esquire with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.988 billion Fams are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lowercase City. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Fam economy, worth a remarkable 1,358 trillion mint condition Star Wars action figures a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,961 mint condition Star Wars action figures, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

SAS-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Lowercase City to enjoy their national art, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime is totally unknown. Straight Arm Salute's national animal is the Roflcopter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Straight Arm Salute is ranked 92,913th in the world and 488th in Equinox for Highest Drug Use, scoring 64.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
