The Commune of Siroy is a massive, genial nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.672 billion Siroyians 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 concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Education and the Environment are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 51%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing.
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 -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Siroy's national animal is the Fairy, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Bosh.
Siroy is ranked 2,894th in Balder and 108,654th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -26 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
