Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Can of SillyString is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 10.316 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, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The SillyStringian economy, worth 494 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. Average income is 47,924 bits of string, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

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 41,956th in the world and 1,897th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 60.33 on the Human Development Index.
