The Matriarchy of Sylviatte is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 315 million Cretanjans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 11.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sylviattean economy, worth 12.6 trillion Scarabs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,896 Scarabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and Owl is one of the most popular forenames in Sylviatte. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sylviatte's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sylviatte is ranked 268,408th in the world and 9th in Cretanja Queendom for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.77 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
