The Democratic Republic of Silver-Tree is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ruers with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.14 billion Silvanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tossa Delmar. The average income tax rate is 7.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Silvanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,278 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 249,248 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, it's never "just a game" with Silvanian sports fans, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", and it is rumoured that Ruers uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silver-Tree's national animal is the Red Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Farting.

Silver-Tree is ranked 10,546th in the world and 2nd in The Conservative Democracies for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 39,785.31 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
