The People's Republic of Samaltak True is a massive, safe nation, ruled by La Première with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.606 billion Samaltakeans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baie-Mahault. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Samaltakean economy, worth 192 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. Average income is an impressive 119,770 Deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 13,407th in the world and 461st in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 86.21 Atheism Rate.
