The Voivodeship of Syldania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Voivode Krisztina II with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 11.208 billion Syldanians 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 large, 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 Helvapestberg. The average income tax rate is 46.0%.

The very strong Syldanian economy, worth 809 trillion Kroner a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 72,247 Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syldania's national animal is the Syldanian Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Syldanian Reformed Church.

Syldania is ranked 72,787th in the world and 37th in Arkonos for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,572.95 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
