The Disputed Territories of Silarai is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 774 million akanin are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sahrhaktan. The average income tax rate is 21.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient MaŁn economy, worth 22.2 trillion Motes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 28,649 Motes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on akanin's kindness, torture is illegal, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses. Crime is relatively low. Silarai's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Silarai is ranked 22,634th in the world and 21st in Cynosure for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,614.74 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
