The Commonwealth of Salt-and-Pepper is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.343 billion Salt-and-Pepperians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakwood. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Salt-and-Pepperian economy, worth 67.8 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 50,482 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, and obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salt-and-Pepper's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Salt-and-Pepper is ranked 34,974th in the world and 1,725th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 107.88 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
