The Federal Republic of Synechdoche is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 776 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, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Entropy City. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Synechdochean economy, worth 88.6 trillion Ataraxias a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,198 Ataraxias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Synechdoche's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Synechdoche is ranked 92,359th in the world and 1,443rd in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 776 million Capita.
