The I Should really fix this of Sirrimia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Morthaw III with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and frequent executions. The cynical, devout population of 1.434 billion Sirrimians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hattuşe. The average income tax rate is 30.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sirrimian economy, worth 103 trillion Sharims 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, 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 72,283 Sharims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, and scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sirrimia's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sirrimia is ranked 16,343rd in the world and 6th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.38 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
