The Radical Democracy of Syndieland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Victoria with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.291 billion Syndielanders 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syndieworld. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Syndielandic economy, worth 155 trillion genders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,655 genders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet, and terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests. Crime is totally unknown. Syndieland's national animal is the catgirl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Syndieland is ranked 163,428th in the world and 411th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9.59 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
