The What Now Strawberry Empire of Sindria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 32.959 billion Sindrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sindrian economy, worth a remarkable 8,427 trillion hrafns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 255,711 hrafns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a mortuary next to every Sindrian restaurant, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum. Crime is totally unknown. Sindria's national animal is the capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sindria is ranked 1,992nd in the world and 52nd in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 79 Valid Endorsements.
