The Democratic Republic of Saldinado is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Victor Caldwell with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.963 billion Saldinadoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Morenzo. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Saldinadoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,131 trillion Saldinadoan Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,740 Saldinadoan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Billion-Saldinadoan Dollar sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, folk are absolutely certain that you can never be absolutely certain, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saldinado's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saldinado is ranked 33,221st in the world and 1,352nd in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,126.22 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
