The Empire of Sinoco is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.267 billion Sinocoans 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sinocoan economy, worth 228 trillion Sinos 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. 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 180,024 Sinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens worry more about a split end than their deceased parent, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, billions of Sinos are being blown on orbital weapons development, and enemy combatants are presumed guilty until proven innocent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sinoco's national animal is the ant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sinoco is ranked 189,241st in the world and 4,444th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 61.51 years.
