The Reassurance of Silent Partner is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Silas Silent III with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.13 billion Silent Partnerians 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 juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silenttown. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Silent Partnerian economy, worth 432 trillion Quiets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is 32,954 Quiets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is considered the eighth cardinal virtue, refugees from other nations are flocking to Silent Partner's border, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and cars are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silent Partner's national animal is the mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is La Silence.

Silent Partner is ranked 153,412th in the world and 2nd in The Grid for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.57 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
