The Holy Empire of Sinyal is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 488 million Sinyalians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Au'Rahabar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.4%.

The all-consuming Sinyalian economy, worth 45.6 trillion Intis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 93,471 Intis, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Sinyal's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sinyal is ranked 95,076th in the world and 2,633rd in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 41.1 on the Hayek Index.
