The Imperial Directorate of Saldagon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Director Marigold Redhall with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.112 billion Saldagonians 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, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tremylan. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saldagonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,016 trillion Daags 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 amazing 440,815 Daags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Every week is blindness awareness week, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Saldagon's national animal is the Saldagonian Mountain Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saldakrange.

Saldagon is ranked 2,376th in the world and 1st in Elysiana for Fattest Citizens, with 38.9 Obesity Rate.
