The Socialist Federation of Saralonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairwoman Josť Amanda with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.495 billion Saralonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saralonia City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Saralonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,342 trillion Saralonian Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 267,521 Saralonian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, a video of Chairwoman Josť Amanda wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saralonia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saralonia is ranked 2,592nd in the world and 1st in Foro de Santiago for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 743.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
