The Armed Republic of Sik Levi is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 422 million Sik Levians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maplewing. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sik Levian economy, worth 43.4 trillion Novas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,962 Novas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's poor can be seen scavenging trash bins for used coffee grounds, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and the Sik Levian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sik Levi's national animal is the Pharaoh Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sik Levi is ranked 99,366th in the world and 3,468th in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 46.87 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
