The Braver and Balder State of Pun Sylvania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Crypt Keeper with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.675 billion Pun Sylvanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Punnsburgh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The all-consuming Pun Sylvanian economy, worth 150 trillion drollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 89,830 drollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 559,904 per year while the poor average 6,157, a ratio of 90.9 to 1.

Stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, Punnsburgh's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pun Sylvania's national animal is the mockingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is PUNdaMENTALism.

Pun Sylvania is ranked 40,863rd in the world and 2,088th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,500.55 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
