The Democratic Republic of Saldinado is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Victor Caldwell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.648 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 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Saldinadoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,658 trillion Saldinadoan Dollars a year, is 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 191,747 Saldinadoan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, interest in globalism never flags, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. 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 56,792nd in the world and 2,351st in Balder for Most Income Equality, scoring 44.01 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
