The Dictatorship of SIVA is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12 million Devil Splicers 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 relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 13.7%.

The strong Devil Splicer economy, worth 904 billion SIVA Shards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,391 SIVA Shards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Strategic economic sectors are controlled by the state, the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, Devil Splicer-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SIVA's national animal is the Splicer Shank, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SIVA is ranked 148,600th in the world and 6,404th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 14.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
