The Continental Republic of The Silver Sky is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.956 billion The Silver Skyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient The Silver Skyian economy, worth a remarkable 4,266 trillion Pandora Gems a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 213,816 Pandora Gems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of The Silver Sky's radio stations, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Silver Sky's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
