The Republic of The Syren is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 813 million Syrenians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Syrenian economy, worth 34.6 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,610 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and The Syren has designated The Syren City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Syren's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Syren is ranked 178,151st in the world and 6,667th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 51.88 on the Human Development Index.

Largest Agricultural Sector: 21,984th
