The Can of SillyString is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 11.79 billion SillyStringians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient SillyStringian economy, worth 533 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 45,262 bits of string, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, and kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 12,636th in the world and 549th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 79.69 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
