The SylSyl of Sylia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sylvia with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 6.286 billion Sylians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joylaria. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Sylian economy, worth 145 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 23,149 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, Livádia ston ouranó has been named as Sylia's national religion, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and Sylvia has just been declared ruler of Sylia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Livádia ston ouranó.

Sylia is ranked 58,699th in the world and 4th in Sanctuary of Syl for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,341.67 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
