The Confederacy of Saltspring Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Secretary Maple with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.661 billion Saltspring Islanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaver Point. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saltspring Islandian economy, worth 208 trillion woodchips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,375 woodchips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, and tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs. Crime is totally unknown. Saltspring Island's national animal is the Marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Syrup.

Saltspring Island is ranked 199,875th in the world and 424th in The Internationale for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.93 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
