The People's Republic of Samaltak True is a massive, safe nation, ruled by La Première with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.208 billion Samaltakeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baie-Mahault. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Samaltakean economy, worth 576 trillion Deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,933 Deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, government employees from Samaltak True dominate international lumberjack competitions, AIs make up a majority of the long-term warehouse population, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samaltak True's national animal is the Macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Samaltak True is ranked 6,581st in the world and 221st in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.78 bananas ingested per day.
