The Syndicate of Sigma Iotia II is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bela Oxmyx with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.255 billion Bosses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The all-consuming Sigma Iotia economy, worth 116 trillion Heaters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 92,454 Heaters, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 524,281 per year while the poor average 7,969, a ratio of 65.8 to 1.

The nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, Bela Oxmyx has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, Bela Oxmyx is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, and Chicago Mobs of the Twenties has been named as Sigma Iotia II's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sigma Iotia II's national animal is the Gangster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chicago Mobs of the Twenties.

Sigma Iotia II is ranked 60,821st in the world and 48th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Influential, scoring 326 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
