The Bolivarian People's Republic of Siphas is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory gun ownership, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 605 million siphasians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirimbasawa. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming siphasian economy, worth 59.3 trillion tupis a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,986 tupis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Siphasian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals, most academic research has ground to a halt, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Siphas's national animal is the armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Siphas is ranked 172,797th in the world and 343rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 594.44 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
