Syln

The Federation of Syln is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 45 million Sylniteses hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The strong Sylnian economy, worth 2.61 trillion Prime dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 57,983 Prime dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, real estate agencies are being replaced by naval recruitment offices, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Syln's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Syln is ranked 272,500th in the world and 6,713th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
