Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Kingdom of Syldonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the ruthless King Colton with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.33 billion Syldonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oblivion. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Syldonian economy, worth 145 trillion deimoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 43,584 deimoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, Syldonia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syldonia's national animal is the Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Syldonia is ranked 741st in Lazarus and 17,542nd in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring 36 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
