The Confederacy of Saltspring Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Secretary Maple with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.681 billion Saltspring Islanders enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaver Point. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Saltspring Islandian economy, worth 515 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 140,016 woodchips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. 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 33,209th in the world and 42nd in The Internationale for Most Stationary, with 625.71315509888 Days.
