The Republic of Silumi is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 850 million Silumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Carthago. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Silumian economy, worth 54.2 trillion euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,803 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, babies are a small but significant export, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silumi's national animal is the fennec, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Silumi is ranked 161,961st in the world and 849th in Europe for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
