Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pluralistic Republic of Siroy is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.702 billion Siroyeses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Siroyian economy, worth 105 trillion Boshes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 18,485 Boshes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siroy's national animal is the Gull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Siroy is ranked 144,033rd in the world and 61st in Esportiva for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 9.83 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
