The Empire of Salus Maior is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Gustavus I Nicator with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.167 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 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Salusi economy, worth 735 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 55,884 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 117,792nd in the world and 5th in Zentari for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.22 on the Rand Index.
