The Slumbering Mega-Nation of Silberklinge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader Prime with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.91 billion Silberklingeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silberklinge City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Silberklingean economy, worth a remarkable 6,934 trillion Peoples Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,636 Peoples Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Peoples Credit treacle machine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silberklinge's national animal is the Bandersnatch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Silberklinge is ranked 1,679th in the world and 87th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,769.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
