The Neraklos Province of Syrakhstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ayatollah Mahdavi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.885 billion Syrakhstanis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgabhad. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.
The all-consuming Syrakhstanian economy, worth 975 trillion Shahis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 123,655 Shahis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 444,760 per year while the poor average 24,608, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.
It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syrakhstan's national animal is the Persian Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.
Syrakhstan is ranked 29th in Audax and 18,835th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 183 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
