The Imperium of Sycruliovin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Imperator Emiliano with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.865 billion Sycruliovinians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callisto. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sycruliovinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,214 trillion monetaes a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,974 monetaes, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sycruliovin's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Haendelian religion.

Sycruliovin is ranked 23,223rd in the world and 1,154th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 60,556.7 Standard Monetary Units.
