The Anablephobia of Straight Arm Salute is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.228 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 Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69%. 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.

Corporations are either above the law or corrupting it, Straight Arm Salute is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', and teenage fathers are forced to join the army. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straight Arm Salute's national animal is the American Bald Eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the American Dollar.

Straight Arm Salute is ranked 171st in Lazarus and 4,042nd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 26 Whatever.
