The Socialist Federation of Saralonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Provisional National Assembly with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.664 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 962 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 206,474 Saralonian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, and left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks. 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 175,738th in the world and 73rd in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Pro-Market, scoring -71.67 on the Rand Index.
