The Holy Empire of Greater-Syria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Reinhard von Lohengramm with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.058 billion Syrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater-Syrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,673 trillion Syrian Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 207,729 Syrian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Commemoration of the Great the Rejected Realms War costs almost as much as the war itself, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Kaiser Reinhard von Lohengramm For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Kaiser Reinhard von Lohengramm's supporters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater-Syria's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Church.

Greater-Syria is ranked 11,232nd in the world and 274th in the Rejected Realms for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 31.6 Bank.
