The Game Administrator's Realm of SalusaSecondus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shaddam Corrino III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.711 billion SalusaSeconders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lion's Head. The average income tax rate is 6.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Salusan economy, worth a remarkable 5,561 trillion solaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 151,487 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

It is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, the Salusan Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. SalusaSecondus's national animal is the sardaukar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Confusionism.

SalusaSecondus is ranked 21,131st in the world and 6th in The Cuckoos Egg for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 15,519.37 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
