The Empire of Salkor is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arren Au Lupus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.293 billion Salkorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falgor city. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Salkorian economy, worth 79.3 trillion Arkens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,350 Arkens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Salkor to be bombproof, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and every school is receiving a brand new eraser. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salkor's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Salkor is ranked 17,322nd in the world and 56th in Thaecia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,436.34 Tourists Per Hour.
