The Empire of Sydrzay is a massive, devout nation, ruled by emperor Aleksander III with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.257 billion Sydrzene enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Religion & Spirituality, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manka napal. The average income tax rate is 34%. A large private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Manka napal's water use, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sydrzay's national animal is the crowned lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Sydrzen Catholiscism, and its currency is the sydrzen krona.

Sydrzay is ranked 11th in Le FoPo Division and 88,738th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
