⠀⠀A Calamitous Birth⠀

⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


May 7th, 1961, 0700 GMT. An American trijet carrying 49 executives of the Synne Industries manufacturing corporation deviates from its planned heading across the Atlantic. 0713, two B-52 strategic bombers along a Southern route as part of the USAF's Operation Chrome Dome alter courses. 0733, a military transport ferrying unknown equipment for private contractors moves ever Southward. Over the span of the next 24 hours nearly one hundred aircraft both civilian and military would rally upon a singular North Atlantic island of moss and stone. Even at the height of the Cold War, a conspiracy over four decades in the making would see actualization in its fullest. Everything from the modified airliners to the abandoned German airfield had been designed with these few hours in mind as thousands of military, scientific, and market leaders streamed inward within aircraft onto the paved dirt runways or into the Atlantic waves nearby. Airliners, strategic transports, interceptors, craft from both the West and East would take part in this great convergence. Out of confusion or perhaps fear, not a single shootdown would be seen over NATO airspace. The Soviet bloc would see twelve.

As cargo holds were emptied and fuel tanks drained, the assembly of rudimentary construction equipment, housing tents, and electric generators would commence. The deserters would be quick in preparation, utilizing construction technologies and design models suppressed from the public eye for years. Though the command structure of militaries and in turn, governments across the globe would lay in paralysis, the two superpowers of the world soon train their guns and bombsights upon the isles. Chaos would engulf the Soviet armed forces in the coming days. Sleepers planted throughout the naval structure of the East activated, a web of attempted mutinies erupting across the Northern fleet and its patrols. Though most would fail, nearly a dozen guided missile cruisers and submarines steered course Westward. Though this military insurrection would not truly cripple either side, the rebels were now in possession of several nuclear weapons and with Soviet cruisers, a means to deliver them.

Rioting, tyrants, division, war, the separatists saw these many things and wished to rid themselves of it. The human spirit is one which could not be tamed but it is one which could be appeased, perhaps indefinitely. Death, man feared it. It is the driving force behind many of one's motives. The worker toils day by day because if they shall not work they shall not eat, or drink, or live. Give the worker an opportunity to ascend through merit and they shall work. Fail to provide this opportunity in a timely manner and death quickly becomes the preferable alternative. Give the worker eternal life and this timeliness may be stretched across a century if not more. The humble worker becomes the scholar and soon the machine can be the one which toils away in the fields, factories, and refineries. This vision is one birthed from the mind of a once young man turned old in mind yet not body, [TBA] Synne. The current and only head of the Synne Industries Manufacturing Corporation sought to create an environment in which the immortal could thrive as an ever-growing machine without hindrance whether through authority or ineptitude of the common people. Though the technologies had been present many decades prior, it would only wither and die in any preexisting nation state. To create a society of the deathless would require one to start anew. Immortality was not a mere advancement but a foundation.

But if the rest of the world could not accept that this new sovereignty would be the only country to grasp eternal life, then the immortal would be willing to deny themselves to all else. Twenty nuclear weapons salvaged from bombers and missiles were placed about the island, a total yield capable of erasing those many inhabitants in the first wave from the face of the planet. Any attempt at invasion, abduction, or the likes would result in the complete nuclear annihilation of thousands of perhaps the most powerful people at that point in history. It was a risk neither Yankee nor Red was willing to take. As tensions died, wars cut to a close, and the true extent of the damage done becoming apparent, both East and West silently backed away. There would be little in the future for these empires in decline, but perhaps it is only natural for potential to be passed onto one's spawn.

A calamity, a unity, and from the blaze, a new nation birthed.

⠀Where We Stand Today⠀⠀


⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


The Nation State of Synnia, given twelve decades, eternal life, and some of the most talented individuals of our time, has grown to be at the forefront of the world stage economically, technologically, and militarily. Serving the world since even before our national inception, Synne Industries as a corporation is the most experienced group on Earth in weapons manufacture, designing, testing, producing, and selling anything from small arms to guided missile cruisers to parties both private and national. Though these two parts of the Synne Industries Manufacturing Corporation are wholly independent save for their head, both work in tandem to maintain that warlike economy which keeps the Synnian arms industry alfoat and thriving.

Though markets have diversified and our resident corporate groups with them, Synne Industries still remains very much a militarist country and an arms manufacturing corporation. Synnia thrives on war. Conflict outside of Synnian borders is something we have accepted as a fact of life, war is a constant in human progression. Whether for material gain, reasons ideological, or simply irrationality and madness, there will be those who wish to wage war and are able to gather the following to do so. Though we at Synne Industries wish to remain the middle man, sometimes slight nudges and foreign intervention is needed. A little sociopolitical push in a backwater dictatorship may be able to prevent needless travesties from happening elsewhere, all while keeping the money rolling. Senseless violence in the modern world is fast and comes without warning, being unprofitable long-term, organized violence stretches on for decades acting as a far more stable market.

Of course this is not to say that Synne Industries is a perpetuator of mindless aggression. If anything we favor the defender, as the aggressor remains more or less a constant. You can give a man a gun, but sometimes he will want another, especially when their somewhat psychotic neighbors are given the same option. Synnia stand for no ideals internationally, we do not wish to impose any ideologies upon other sovereignties and thus we do not discriminate when it comes to customers. We as a corporation care little for who you are, as long as you have the money for the product, we'll put it in your hands. Anyone who refuses our services for the mere reason that we also offer them to their rivals will simply be the one without the advantage of Synnian equipment, others taking quick advantage of this. More humane parties are much better off with our technologies in their hands, able to mutually assure the destruction of enemies more civil and being able to adequately defend against those who are not.

Perhaps it is this sense of mutually-assured destruction which is responsible for the modern Synnian lifestyle, at least in terms of both physical and financial defense. Every Synnian is in a sense their own sovereignty, their material possessions akin to those of a nation as a whole. As a nation state fields a defense force to protect its belongings, a Synnian bears their own arsenal of sometimes military-grade weaponry to protect themselves and their possessions. The allure of eternal life is taken from a person when one knows it can be snuffed out in any shootout, robbery, or home invasion. Synnians are allowed in their fullest to defend themselves and their property and they do each and every day. There are little to no formal law enforcement groups in Synnia for nearly every citizen bears a number of personal weapons to eclipse the armies of some countries. Widely-available firearms safety courses along with extensive defense law education programmes work towards a society in which the criminal fears not only law enforcement but both the victim and the bystander.

Synne Industries may be a corporation, but Synnia is first and foremost a country. We possess a government separate from our corporate structure, the two fully capable of quarreling over matters domestic and international. We bear national borders, offer citizenship, impose taxation if only slight, and engage in diplomacy. A person who takes residence on our Midatlantic archipelago is not an employee of Synne Industries, they are a Synnian.

⠀⠀The Human Singularity⠀

⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Not everyone can become a Synnian.

Some are lucky enough to be born one, others are simply not and shall stay that way perhaps to their death. Synnia is an ever growing machine and its people the components; it is near impossible to add another part while the mechanism is running. Being a Synnian requires the right upbringing, education, experience, and connections, things which are very rarely provided in the same manner past the point of childbirth. Heavy restrictions on immigration to Synnia are only there for the good of foreigners, being unable to stay in the streamlined flow of working, moving, learning, and thinking will have one be trampled by those around them. Recovery is possible, housing and necessities for the homeless and unemployed are provided by mostly private sources but these places exist only so that a person is given the opportunity to recover. Synnia is not a welfare state, you may rest in public housing only to the point at which you can receive the right education and become employed. Eternal life is precious and should not be wasted, but spending it rotting away by the mercy of someone else is a waste akin to death. Freeloaders shall be expelled.

This is not to say the toil for monetary gain must seem as such. Synnia is a land of opportunity and to squander that is to only hurt yourself. There is little need for menial repetitive manual labor on the Synnian Isles; most machines can dig for minerals, move boxes, and flip hamburger patties, very few can pilot aircraft, design skyscrapers, and create art. To make one act against one's own accord is to have them act inefficiently. To force one to slave away to contribute to the economy wastes resources on enforcers whether financial or physical. To make one work for the sake of working is simply inefficient. Synnia seeks to take one's inner desires and provide a means of monetizing it. In a world as populous and interconnected as our own, even a niche market halfway across the planet is adequate for one to earn a living wage. Synnia is very much an arms-oriented country but allowing for natural diversification in local markets both takes advantage of the wants of the citizen and offers a fallback for the Synnian economy as a whole.

A system like Synnia's which favors one's control over their employment combined with our long heritage of business leaders has resulted in a far more even ratio between the employers and employed. Advances in robotics and artificial quasi-intelligences combined with Synnia's unique industrial base allows the market to smoothly adjust to changes in this ratio and providing far more legroom for business owners and the self-employed. Recruiting industrial workers to maintain and oversee a plant requires time, money, and most importantly: people. Employing machine workers for low-end tasks will eliminate those factors save for the initial cost of purchase and slight maintenance upkeep. Decades of this method has led to Synnian Mom & Pop shops with the capability to act with the same influence as foreign multinationals, and in no place is this more prevalent than the SynUnder subterranean manufacturing complex.

The SynUnder mass-excavation project is the reason why the Synnian Isles are able to sustain a population of nearly one billion whilst retaining a land area akin to that of Iceland. This gridlike industrial-agricultural-habitation complex spanning several kilometers underneath Synnian territory is what allows the country's private enterprise to sustain itself. If split evenly, every Synnian citizen would be provided 0.004 cubic kilometers of factory. With continued mining operations and the latest in attoscale fabrication and construction, the factory continues to grow not by our command but its own. Synne Industries embraces that human will to craft, to build, to design, to make and provides itself and its people a means of doing so better than any foreign competitor.

It is this cycle of creation which makes Synnia what it is. An island of 981 million immortals left to think, work, and create until the end of time. It is a society akin to a machine intelligence's singularity, turning rocks into guns until there are no rocks left. For what reason? Fun and profit and perhaps nothing else.

⠀Corporate⠀⠀


⠀⠀⠀

Though partially assisting in the management of the Synnian nation state, the Synne Industries Manufacturing Corporation still remains what it has been for the past century, a corporate entity. Synne Industries as a corporation is a mostly domestic manufacturing conglomerate operating in all but a select few foreign nations. Though Synne Industries establishments are spread across the globe, the majority of its industrial base resides on Synnian soil, primarily apart of the SynUnder manufacturing complex. Though bearing a similar name to its government collaborator, the Synnian State and Synne Industries are two distinct entities.

Synne Industries is by no means a megacorporation; it does not "own its country". The founding of Synnia saw Synne Industries absorb a number of preexisting business entities, turning it into the quasi-conglomerate it is today but this still remained a business. Synne Industries exists with the sole purpose and responsibility of making profit and it is this profit which drives the Synnian machine. The revenue of the Synnian corporation and the Synnian government is functionally split at a ratio according to the needs of both. It is the collaboration between the both which allows this tandem governing system to function. Where Synne Industries's ruthless business acumen across the world stage funds the Synnian government in place of domestic taxation, the state acts simply as such, pushing and prodding in matters overseas to benefit Synne Industries, or perhaps Synnian private enterprise as a whole.

The model of Synne Industries has largely shaped the development of other larger Synnian corporations, some even growing to be more powerful than itself. A primary aspect of Synne Industries is the absolute refusal to act as a multinational. As foreign endangerment of production centers may drag the corporation and perhaps even the country into needless and wasteful interventionism, the vast majority of Synne Industries manufacturing assets remains on Synnian soil or rather under it. To support this model alongside the export-based Synnian economy in general, Synne Industries has invested heavily in both fast and efficient methods of cargo-hauling. Collaborating with numerous aeronautical manufacturing groups, Synne Industries and its domestic competitors give the country the largest air and sea merchant fleets in the world, something often overlooked.

Though primarily a manufacturing corporation, Synne Industries does act as a "gap filler" of sorts when it comes to government activity. Direct state influence in Synnia is kept at a minimum and thus Synne Industries among many other 'universal' conglomerates act to profit from generally government-associated services. Synne Industries is responsible for some of Synnia's more affordable healthcare and housing services in lieu of universal healthcare and public housing. These are usually affordable but by no means "free", Synne Industries services at these levels are functional but are by no means high-grade. They serve as a safety net and no more, drawing some profit as debts are paid back. There are some fields normally state-operated which Synne Industries does not dabble in though as good citizens can be entrusted to cover them. Private firefighting services exist but a good neighbor knows that if the house next to theirs is in a blaze, their own could very much be next. Synnian law enforcement is present but only in small numbers as an armed criminal is a threat to all in the immediate area, urging both victim and bystander to take full advantage of Synnian retaliatory law. These things can be handled by a responsible citizenry but not everyone will let another live in their house for several years as they find a proper job, this remains the responsibility of Synne Industries and those like it.

Being entrenched in Synnian governance law does not mean that Synne Industries is the leader in the Synnian domestic market though. The corporation receives little government support outside of the aforementioned "subsidization" and competes with other Synnian corporate entities just as any other company would. Even with a past in arms design, Synne Industries for the most part only assists in the design finalization and manufacture of weapons technology for both private and state clients, taking on a secondary role to more prominent Synnian aeronautical groups. Though the Synne Industries corporation may no longer be a towering market giant, its actions have fostered a nation and its legacy.

The second arm of Synnia's tandem governance system is the Synnian government itself. It is a web of labyrinthine bureaucracy arranged in a quasi-corporate configuration. Though the Chief Executive by law holds absolute authority over the nation, this is hardly the case in practice as policies are both put in-place and adjusted by means of a streamlined direct democratic system. Each citizen is permitted one vote and the CEO only acts as the final step in implementing laws or ordering government action. Any attempt by the Chief Executive or any other at denying the implementation of laws voted into place will often result in particularly forceful organized civilian action.

In a pursuit to minimize government size, declutter administration, and create a variety of different sociopolitical environments to better accommodate different types of Synnian, the Synnian isles are relatively decentralized in governance. The country is divided into twelve administrative regions, four aboveground and eight underground with the latter group being further split into habitable "folds". Laws differ dependent on local regions, often down to the municipal level. Over the decades this has created prominent differences between regions in not only general ways of living but cultures as a whole. Synnia's impossible population density creates an environment where one can spend half a century living in the same cubic mile and accents can change several times over an hour of inter-city travel.

One of the more important roles of the Synnian government is curbing monopolies. Though Synnian private enterprise is for the most part unrestricted in terms of international affairs, the freedom of smaller businesses to operate on Synnian soil is instrumental to keeping the national machine running. Though there may not be a clear differentiating line between the two, smaller domestic businesses and larger international businesses operating from Synnia have reached a de-facto agreement not to interfere with the operations of the other. Whereas larger Synnian companies handle overseas contracts of all sizes, they rarely operate out of large urban centers on the islands themselves, allowing less influential local businesses to freely compete on their own level.

Where agreements out of this mutual respect fail, the Synnian government steps-in to assist. By not allowing one or even a select few corporate entities to dominate a specific market, the Synnian government is able to make do and adjust even if one corporate giant falls. Synnia's tandem system further supports this as the Synne Industries company is wholly capable of filling the role of a general manufacturer. Subsidies are for the most part absent, it is the responsibility of a company and itself alone to prepare for the worst and keep itself running, its funding from its own pockets and not those of the taxpayer.

Synnia as a whole is very much a country operated by the people. It is a machine which runs by itself and for itself, a government or even a nation for that matter existing merely for the purpose of providing some semblance of a unifying identity. It stands for no arbitrary ideals of ideology and works case-by-case. It exists to troubleshoot and optimize for its people and by extension itself into the great infinity granted form by the gift of immortality. It is a necessary evil to stamp out the few imperfections of chaos.
