The Fool King of Siburria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sib with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.51 billion Chess Playerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chesslandia. The average income tax rate is 61.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Siburrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion Pawns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,326 Pawns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to comfort a crying baby between the hours of 6 pm and 8 pm, the government has been criticized for giving away Siburria's territory to anyone who claims it, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up. Crime is relatively low. Siburria's national animal is the Chess Set, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chess.

Siburria is ranked 146,018th in the world and 27th in Solid Kingdom for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -4.47 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
