The Great Moon Republic of Silician is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Primi Novissimi with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.551 billion Silicans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caput. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.6%.
The all-consuming Silican economy, worth a remarkable 1,123 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 131,414 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.
The government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silician's national animal is the Bumblebee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
