Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Anablephobia of Straight Arm Salute is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord Sir Supreme Esquire with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.359 billion Fams love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lowercase City. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Fam economy, worth 493 trillion mint condition Star Wars action figures a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,893 mint condition Star Wars action figures, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straight Arm Salute's national animal is the Roflcopter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Straight Arm Salute is ranked 49th in Equinox and 20,121st in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
