The Deus ex Machina of Republic of salo is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Il Duce with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.925 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 4,584 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 29,231st in the world and 1st in central europe for Most Authoritarian, with 1.1 Stalins.
