Salitasia

The Federal Republic of Salitasia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.009 billion Salitasians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.1%.

The thriving Salitasian economy, worth 104 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,254 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 467,793 per year while the poor average 13,984, a ratio of 33.5 to 1.

In its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Salitasia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Salitasia is ranked 138,110th in the world and 275th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,140.8 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
