The Commonwealth of Salty Mountain is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Andrew Moore with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.334 billion Salt Grains 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bay Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.6%.

The powerhouse Salty economy, worth 360 trillion Andrew Dollar Eroes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 83,168 Andrew Dollar Eroes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 292,649 per year while the poor average 17,119, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

The well-to-do in The Alliance of Eros are never on time for important appointments, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, there's a big brother in every prison, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salty Mountain's national animal is the Snorlax, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

Salty Mountain is ranked 71,441st in the world and 33rd in The Alliance of Eros for Most Armed, with 0.5 Weapons Per Person.
