OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Silenti Ect is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Voorbode with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 10.084 billion Silenti Ectians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bijou de Valuer. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and the nation leads Lazarus in per capita stalking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silenti Ect's national animal is the Nundu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Church, and its currency is the Gemma.

Silenti Ect is ranked 40th in Lazarus and 979th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 403 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
