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 keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.231 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 87%, 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.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and the new hit series "Straight Arm Salute's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country. Crime 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 1st in Madrigal and 2,334th in the world for Best Weather, with 293 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
