The 🎺 ʟᴇɢɪᴏɴᴀʀʏ ᴡᴏʀʟᴅ ʀᴇᴘᴜʙʟɪᴄ of Silver Commonwealth is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by 👮 ꜱᴜᴘᴇʀᴄᴏᴍᴘᴜᴛᴇʀ ᴛᴏᴍ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.213 billion Humans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 🏙️ ɴᴇᴏ ᴡᴀꜱʜɪɴɢᴛᴏɴ. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Human economy, worth 952 trillion 💲 ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴏɴᴡᴇᴀʟᴛʜ'ꜱ ᴅᴏʟʟᴀʀs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 225,980 💲 ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴏɴᴡᴇᴀʟᴛʜ'ꜱ ᴅᴏʟʟᴀʀs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, and Human tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silver Commonwealth's national animal is the 🐦ʙᴀʟᴅ ᴇᴀɢʟᴇ, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is ✜ ᴄʜʀɪꜱᴛɪᴀɴ ᴍʏꜱᴛɪᴄɪꜱᴍ ᴀɴᴅ ᴏᴛʜᴇʀꜱ.

Silver Commonwealth is ranked 204,971st in the world and 24th in The Great Chili for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
