The Celestial Republic of Salizene is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Scion Aedes Nova with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 5.514 billion Salizeneans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Salizenean economy, worth 855 trillion Federation Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,063 Federation Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salizene's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Void.

Salizene is ranked 11,267th in the world and 2nd in Laotis for Most Cultured, scoring 104 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
