The Kingdom of Salisford is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Swift Breeze with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 12.031 billion ponies are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savotta. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salisfordian economy, worth a remarkable 2,151 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,868 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and courtrooms can be a little sketchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salisford's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Salisford is ranked 301,188th in the world and 641st in The League for Fattest Citizens, with 3.68 Obesity Rate.
