The Democratic Kingdom of Salokia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Salokin with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.667 billion Salokis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salok. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salokian economy, worth 534 trillion ursas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,802 ursas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, high school bands practice by moonlight, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through King Salokin's window to draw attention to their issues, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salokia's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Salokia is ranked 49,603rd in the world and 103rd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,012.45 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
