Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Golfwang of The Salvation States is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.193 billion Salvatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sinapppolis. The average income tax rate is 18.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salvatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,082 trillion nipples a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 122,335 nipples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Sinapppolis to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Salvation States's national animal is the bearded dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Salvation States is ranked 42,761st in the world and 1,329th in Lazarus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 87.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
