The Commune of Siroy is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.997 billion Siroyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Siroyian economy, worth 20.5 trillion Boshes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 4,111 Boshes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siroy's national animal is the Fairy, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
