The Commonwealth of Salt-and-Pepper is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 364 million Salt-and-Pepperians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakwood. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Salt-and-Pepperian economy, worth 14.6 trillion bitcoins 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 Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 39,988 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Salt-and-Pepperian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salt-and-Pepper's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Salt-and-Pepper is ranked 162,878th in the world and 6,927th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.28 Crimes Per Hour.
