The United Socialist States of Silencorvus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Nox with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.195 billion Silencorvusians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dawn. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Silencorvusian economy, worth 134 trillion watchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,346 watchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silencorvus's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Silencorvus is ranked 82,938th in the world and 2nd in Comintern Liberation Army of the World for Most Extreme, scoring 21.63 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
