The Can of SillyString is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 10.847 billion SillyStringians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient SillyStringian economy, worth 491 trillion bits of string a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,320 bits of string, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, the government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SillyString's national animal is the Seal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SillyString is ranked 76,433rd in the world and 4,221st in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 82.58 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
