The Kingdom of Sylvaynia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Zan-Vier Kraka with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.786 billion Sylvaynians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaliskora. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvaynian economy, worth 247 trillion Valyas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,589 Valyas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylvaynia's national animal is the Great White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Varyuchai.

Sylvaynia is ranked 263,030th in the world and 230th in The Western Isles for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.65 crimes per hour.
