The Democratic Republic of Sinthia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 970 million Sinthians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nelling. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sinthian economy, worth 83.3 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,887 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, and several inches are being added to first class seating. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sinthia's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sinthia is ranked 124,722nd in the world and 750th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 118,798 Standard Monetary Units.
