The United Socialist States of Silabar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.617 billion Silabarns hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Silabarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,011 trillion Labor Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 259,192 Labor Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, no one knows how to tie a reef knot, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for. Crime is totally unknown. Silabar's national animal is the Prasio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Silabar is ranked 3,363rd in the world and 16th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
