The Straight but Allied of Saltidia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Josef von Quakk AKA Robot Duck with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.773 billion Salters are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noordeleicht. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saltidian economy, worth 209 trillion stelks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,144 stelks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, doctors will keep brain-dead coma patients ventilated for years in order to avoid accusations of allowing people to die, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saltidia's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is none specifically.

Saltidia is ranked 33,425th in the world and 781st in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 78.83 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
