Sylvania Clans

Population7.358 billion

LeaderVarken Drakenhof


The Empire of Sylvania Clans is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Varken Drakenhof with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.358 billion Sylvanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drakenhof. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.7%.

The very strong Sylvanian economy, worth 543 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 73,878 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 254,330 per year while the poor average 15,723, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, military spending is on the increase, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylvania Clans's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sylvania Clans is ranked 174,315th in the world and 52nd in New World Union for Nudest, with 70.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
