The United Communes of Salton Republic is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The People with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.755 billion Saltons 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 Athens City. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Saltonian economy, worth 966 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,014 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown. Salton Republic's national animal is the Great horned owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Salton Republic is ranked 20,913th in the world and 412th in the Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
