The Anablephobia of Straight Arm Salute is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord Sir Supreme Esquire with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.048 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 84%, 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.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 50th in Madrigal and 59,927th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -10.399 Insults Per Minute (net).
