Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Deus ex Machina of Republic of salo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Il Duce with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.843 billion Republic of saloans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Republic of saloan economy, worth a remarkable 4,368 trillion lires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 199,976 lires, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 720,930 per year while the poor average 39,654, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Republic of salo's national animal is the duce, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Duceism.

Republic of salo is ranked 24,285th in the world and 4th in central europe for Most Authoritarian, with 1.1 Stalins.
