The Confederacy of Sirmaka is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 285 million Sirmakans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sirmakan economy, worth 9.63 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 33,787 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sirmaka's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sirmaka is ranked 254,885th in the world and 9,589th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 48.28 on the Human Development Index.
