The Constitutional Monarchy of Saliown is a small, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 26 million Saliownians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 19.9%.

The Saliownian economy, worth 1.43 trillion Rices a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 54,921 Rices, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, and Brasilistan has been announced as the nation's newest colony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saliown's national animal is the Sandwich , which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saliown is ranked 73,500th in the world and 3,879th in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 13 Average Smiles Per Day.
