The Kingdom of Salisford is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Swift Breeze with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.547 billion ponies are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salisford. The average income tax rate is 38.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salisfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,441 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,696 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", major cities run on potato batteries, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salisford's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Salisford is ranked 11,801st in the world and 10th in The League for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,816.75 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
