The World Syndicalist Republics of Silver Commonwealth is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Supercomputer Tom with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 880 million Americans 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 Neo Washington. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 121 trillion Commonwealth Dollars 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, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 138,010 Commonwealth Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. 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 Bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Silver Commonwealth is ranked 50,228th in the world and 4th in The Great Chili for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 166,159.03 Standard Monetary Units.
