The Awakened Capital of Siburria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sib with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.614 billion Chess Playerians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chesslandia. The average income tax rate is 63.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Siburrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,450 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 rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,949 Pawns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have. 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 167,550th in the world and 7th in Solid Kingdom for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.47 percentage of bribes refused.
