The Republic of Saltanyas is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Karl Marx with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.313 billion Saltanyasians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marcuse. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Saltanyasian economy, worth a remarkable 7,198 trillion adornoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 372,706 adornoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid. Crime is totally unknown. Saltanyas's national animal is the fromm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Communism.

Saltanyas is ranked 279th in the world and 1st in Frankfurter Schule for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 101.73 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
