The Federation of Sylvanira is a large, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 62 million Sylvanirans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Sylvaniran economy, worth 882 billion Dracs 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 14,229 Dracs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylvanira's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sylvanira is ranked 147,385th in the world and 21st in Gamer Commune for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
