The Game Administrator's Realm of SalusaSecondus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shaddam Corrino III with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 42.605 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lion's Head. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Salusan economy, worth a remarkable 6,839 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 160,534 solaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the diplomatic corps stinks, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. 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 136,699th in the world and 8th in The Cuckoos Egg for Nudest, with 131.75 cheeks per square mile.
