The Socialist Federation of Saralonia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Provisional National Assembly with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.142 billion Saralonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saralonia City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Saralonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,094 trillion Saralonian Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 212,766 Saralonian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saralonia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saralonia is ranked 14,090th in the world and 7th in Latinoamerica Libre for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,474.42 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
