The Duckocracy of Saltidia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Josef von Quakk with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.19 billion Saltidians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noordeleicht. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saltidian economy, worth 136 trillion stalcks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 114,650 stalcks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', the most common doctor's prescription is "get out of my consulting room", the "good old days" of road traffic accidents and smog-filled cities are back, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saltidia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Saltidia is ranked 150,260th in the world and 337th in Carcassonne for Most Authoritarian, with 655.9 milliStalins.
