The Theocracy of Salmao is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 311 million Salmaoans 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 enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Salmaoan economy, worth 7.81 trillion Somons 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 25,102 Somons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, organ donation is compulsory, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salmao's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Salmao is ranked 100,904th in the world and 5,791st in Balder for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 688.01 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
