|Capital||Avios de blade|
|Faith||The order of the Imperator|
The Exalted Empire of Silverblade is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Exalted Imperator with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, enslaved workforce, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.325 billion Silverbladeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avios de blade. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.1%.
The all-consuming Silverbladean economy, worth 396 trillion strilan coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 170,625 strilan coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 608,249 per year while the poor average 34,426, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.
The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and many Silverbladeans are their brothers' keepers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silverblade's national animal is the silver fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The order of the Imperator.
