The Holy Empire of Greater-Syria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Reinhard von Lohengramm with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.459 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater-Syrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,498 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 200,927 Syrian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone apparently sends Kaiser Reinhard von Lohengramm hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Greater-Syria, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Leopolis" t-shirts. 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 4,073rd in the world and 100th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 95.03 on the Human Development Index.
