The Kingdom of Salibaic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King John II with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.627 billion Salibaicians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunbarline. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Salibaician economy, worth 481 trillion Yets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,071 Yets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salibaic's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Holy Shrine of Dr Owl.

Salibaic is ranked 202,455th in the world and 143rd in Force for Nudest, with 30 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
