The Radiant Moose of Sylven is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by My Deare Sweet Tomatillo Or Whatevs Hehe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.31 billion Sylveniaux 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sylvent. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sylvenial economy, worth a remarkable 1,326 trillion gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 81,308 gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aides are afraid to ask if My Deare Sweet Tomatillo Or Whatevs Hehe wants a cup of tea or coffee, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, and the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylven's national animal is the Sylver Neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sylvestirizorism.

Sylven is ranked 213,455th in the world and 21st in Solid Kingdom for Most Secular, with 7.07 Atheism Rate.
