In all seriousness, it is a total loss, with zero hope of repair.
Camera bodies are not hermetically sealed, and the interior components are not sealed off from one another, so if you see moisture anywhere inside the camera, that means it has been or will be damaged in other parts as well. The internal components are not designed to resist water. Once moisture finds its way inside, it will never come out completely without disassembling the camera. Burying it in rice will only get you moldy rice and a still-broken camera.
Trying to remove the salt by washing the interior is also futile, because a camera is not a 100% solid state device. It is a combination of precision electronic, mechanical, and optical components. Flooding it with water is only going to make the damage worse.
If you are insured against this type of loss, then the camera should be replaced under your policy. If you are not, then you have just learned a very expensive lesson.
