The Collectivist Cyberocracy of Styklelilere is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Operator Phillips with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.014 billion Styklelilereans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sumellnrern. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Styklelilerean economy, worth a remarkable 2,062 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 342,988 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,211,933 per year while the poor average 70,152, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Sumellnrern, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Alsatianball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Styklelilere's national animal is the Alsatian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Styklelilere is ranked 461st in the world and 13th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,085.14 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
