The Dominion of Saleon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Fool with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, enforced nudity, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.669 billion Saleans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BloodBath. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The all-consuming Saleonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,319 trillion dubians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,208 dubians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and The Fool's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saleon's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Saleon is ranked 4,561st in the world and 211th in Osiris for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 8,649.72 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
