The People's Republic of Samaltak True is a massive, genial nation, ruled by La Première with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.272 billion Samaltakeans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baie-Mahault. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Samaltakean economy, worth 148 trillion Deniers 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 116,911 Deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samaltak True's national animal is the Macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Samaltak True is ranked 201,081st in the world and 4,633rd in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 18.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
