The Republic of New Salia is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 83 million New Salians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 10.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Salian economy, worth 3.77 trillion Pence a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,389 Pence, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, New Salian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, children's toy tractors have been seized as state property, and the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Crime is almost non-existent. New Salia's national animal is the Red Panda, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Salia is ranked 46,204th in the world and 9th in Nostromo for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
