Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Peace and Quiet of The Silver Strand is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord Silver with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, disturbing lack of elderly people, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.359 billion 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.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strandingham. The average income tax rate is 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient The Silver Strandian economy, worth 901 trillion Silver Crosses a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,339 Silver Crosses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

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 a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is The Silver Peace.

The Silver Strand is ranked 171,757th in the world and 3rd in Former United States for Best Weather, with 58 Meters Of Sunlight.
