The Red Empire of Salivatan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Orlovas with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.908 billion Salivatanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romuva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The strong Salivatanian economy, worth 170 trillion redcoins 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 89,211 redcoins, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project, rural Salivatanians stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities, the best spies are positively radiant after completing a big mission, and trade ministers have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Salivatan's national animal is the Gold Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Cult of Emperor Orlovas.

Salivatan is ranked 227,244th in the world and 6,017th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
