The United Kingdoms and Empire of The Brand New Salvatagard Republic is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Charles I with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed population of 10.188 billion Salvatagardians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Hirohito-Beckingham. The average income tax rate is 72.8%.

The very strong Salvatagardian economy, worth 680 trillion National Salvatagardian Silver Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,825 National Salvatagardian Silver Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and Emperor Charles I claims to be the epitome of family values. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Brand New Salvatagard Republic's national animal is the Great Blue Eastern Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox.

The Brand New Salvatagard Republic is ranked 124,978th in the world and 5,144th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 752.09 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
