The Syndicate of Sigma Iotia II is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bela Oxmyx with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.074 billion Bosses are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sigma Iotia economy, worth 554 trillion Heaters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 109,303 Heaters, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 590,661 per year while the poor average 10,477, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

It is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, Bela Oxmyx's Twitcher account is typically used to share Gangster memes rather than government policy, and people caught mistreating Sigma Iotia II's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sigma Iotia II's national animal is the Gangster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Chicago Mobs of the Twenties.

Sigma Iotia II is ranked 30,750th in the world and 51st in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Stationary, with 863.20911421248 days.
