The Civilized Tribe of Salguod is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rendir Salguod with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.266 billion Salguodians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rendir. The average income tax rate is 89.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Salguodian economy, worth 582 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,461 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Salguodian-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salguod's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spiritual Endeavor.

Salguod is ranked 2,127th in the world and 231st in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 44,067 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
