The Blessed Monarchy of The Central Pacific Free State is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The King Of Salt with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.349 billion Central Pacificians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greyhaven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Central Pacificic economy, worth a remarkable 1,586 trillion Cryptoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 296,681 Cryptoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,744,587 per year while the poor average 3,107, a ratio of 883 to 1.

The ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through The King Of Salt's window to draw attention to their issues, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Central Pacific Free State's national animal is the Humpback Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saltyism.

The Central Pacific Free State is ranked 19,186th in the world and 971st in Balder for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,456.45 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
