The Grand Duchy of Sylvantha is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 649 million Sylvanthans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 30.2%.

The Sylvanthan economy, worth 40.5 trillion thalars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 62,467 thalars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', re-education centers are being added to most prisons, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied eagle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylvantha's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sylvantha is ranked 91,068th in the world and 5,140th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 66.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
