Sylh Alanor

Population10.729 billion

FaithThe Zyqxuwy


The Socialist Solarpunk Society of Sylh Alanor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Silvehn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.729 billion Alanori are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arlathan. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alanori economy, worth a remarkable 2,366 trillion planets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 220,538 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, visitors to Self-Sufficiency National Park who ask for trail maps are handed a pen and a blank sheet of paper, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylh Alanor's national animal is the halla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Zyqxuwy.

Sylh Alanor is ranked 1,370th in the world and 4th in Refugia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 159.13 law-abiding acts per hour.
