The People's Republic of Samaltak True is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 717 million Samaltakeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Samaltakean economy, worth 72.5 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 significant contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 101,160 Deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 225,040th in the world and 9,600th in The East Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.87 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
