The United Socialist States of Silabar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 18.622 billion Silabarns hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Silabarian economy, worth a remarkable 5,859 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 314,653 Labor Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, Prasios are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. Silabar's national animal is the Prasio, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Silabar is ranked 55,086th in the world and 25th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12,031.14 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
