The United Socialist States of Sylvlakia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The People with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.45 billion Sylvlakians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anarchy. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sylvlakian economy, worth 154 trillion Sylvias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 106,627 Sylvias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Sylvlakian flag, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and citizens may not "love, honor and obey" anyone except the State. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sylvlakia's national animal is the Frost Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sylvlakia is ranked 192,124th in the world and 288th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Black Market, with 29.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
