The Anablephobia of Straight Arm Salute is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Lord Sir Supreme Esquire with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 16.838 billion Straight Arm Saluteans 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 the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of xXx360NOSCOPExXx. The average income tax rate is 78%, 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.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, skateparks can be found in every city, and the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned. 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 Roflcopter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the mint condition Star Wars action figure.

Straight Arm Salute is ranked 53rd in Elysium and 52,477th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
