The Weezer Cover Band of Saltmore is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Derek G Herald with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.601 billion Rickrollers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corn. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rickroll economy, worth 184 trillion Astleys a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,802 Astleys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The treehouse in Goose Park is the tallest building in Saltmore, eminent domain has been abolished, anti-government web sites are springing up, and new homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saltmore's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Saltmore is ranked 254,927th in the world and 379th in Thaecia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -12.24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
