Siranico

The Dictatorship of Siranico is a small, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 23 million Siranicoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 60.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Siranicoan economy, worth 993 billion Tears 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 43,186 Tears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, military spending is on the increase, and unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siranico's national animal is the Bull.

Siranico is ranked 68,178th in the world and 2,770th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
