The Federal Republic of Synechdoche is a very large, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 103 million Synechdocheans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 25.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Synechdochean economy, worth 6.04 trillion Ataraxias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,652 Ataraxias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, and the Synechdochean Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Synechdoche's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Synechdoche is ranked 62,256th in the world and 2,722nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
