The Empire of Salus Maior is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Gustavus I Nicator with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.103 billion Salusis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salus. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Salusi economy, worth 570 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,439 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Salus Maior in search of Imperial Eagles, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salus Maior's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Creed.

Salus Maior is ranked 19,476th in the world and 21st in The Local Cluster for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,331.74 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
