The Golden Harpy Eagle of Salzcovia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Necchia with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.02 billion Salzcovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanuvio. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salzcovian economy, worth 93.2 trillion Salzcovian Reais a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,411 Salzcovian Reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBS Governor goes house hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salzcovia's national animal is the Harpy Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Salzcovia is ranked 194,937th in the world and 7,744th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.32 Obesity Rate.
