Location: The Region of No Rejection

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Free Land of Sy Sanborn is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its burgeoning Giraffe population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.022 billion Sy Sanbornians enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.6%.

The very strong Sy Sanbornian economy, worth 468 trillion Platinums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 38,979 Platinums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 119,074 per year while the poor average 9,890, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Sy Sanborn's national animal is the Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sy Sanborn is ranked 229,281st in the world and 75th in The Region of No Rejection for Highest Poor Incomes, with 9,890.34 Standard Monetary Units.
