The Colony of Salvezia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dispersus Maximus with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.183 billion Salvezians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foresta Profonda. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Salvezian economy, worth 90.3 trillion Salves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is 76,320 Salves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Salvezia, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salvezia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Salvezia is ranked 30,634th in the world and 153rd in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.03 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
