OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Sirenchester is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 469 million Sirenchesterians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 26.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sirenchesterian economy, worth 20.3 trillion Crystalliteses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 43,252 Crystalliteses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, and the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sirenchester's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sirenchester is ranked 49,262nd in the world and 1,061st in the Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 5.66 bananas ingested per day.
