The Unified Duchies of Saldagon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Max Blackwell with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.276 billion Saldagonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyxxon. The average income tax rate is 76.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Saldagonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,005 trillion Daags a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 380,188 Daags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

University graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, holiday-makers leave on the same clandestine boats that illegal immigrants arrive in, foreign leaders who don't applaud Grand Duke Max Blackwell's speeches are regarded as enemies of Saldagon, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Saldagon's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saldakrange.

Saldagon is ranked 23,104th in the world and 5th in Kantrias for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,387.35 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
