The Republic of Salq is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ellis Davidson with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.865 billion Salqans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merric. The average income tax rate is 34.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Salqian economy, worth 224 trillion Maldeqs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,388 Maldeqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, the comic book series 'President Ellis Davidson and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Salqian democracy, and Air Salq is rumored to receive more government funding than the Salqian Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salq's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Salq is ranked 151,979th in the world and 672nd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 42.7 on the Hayek Index.
