The Democratic Republic of Saldinado is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Victor Caldwell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.725 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 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Saldinadoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,273 trillion Saldinadoan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,389 Saldinadoan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", farting etiquette is taught in schools, and people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day". 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 111,544th in the world and 4,676th in the Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.32 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
