OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Empire of Sylantina is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Axel Verinnius with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.056 billion Sylantinans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sylantina City. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sylantinan economy, worth 520 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,377 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', the nation refuses to provide international aid, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sylantina's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sylantina is ranked 74,981st in the world and 3,120th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 42,935.18 Standard Monetary Units.
