The Republic of Syndes is a small, orderly nation, notable for its spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 40 million Syndesians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The strong Syndesian economy, worth 2.16 trillion Guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 54,080 Guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 336,871 per year while the poor average 3,713, a ratio of 90.7 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem. Syndes's national animal is the Cobra.

Syndes is ranked 153,686th in the world and 65th in Middle Earth for Most Developed, scoring 53.77 on the Human Development Index.
