The Peace and Quiet of The Silver Strand is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord Silver with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.462 billion, 1.461 billion of whom are zombies, The Silver Strandians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strandingham. The average income tax rate is 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Silver Strand's national animal is the lobster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is The Silver Peace, and its currency is the Silver Cross.

The Silver Strand is ranked 6th in Former United States and 11,169th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

The Silver Strand is currently considering its options.
