The Intergalactic Autocracy of Synergetik is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Guardian Cyan Sparrows with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.123 billion Galaxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mars Firebase Artemis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.0%.

The powerhouse Galaxian economy, worth 669 trillion Galaxian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 162,296 Galaxian Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 706,569 per year while the poor average 23,595, a ratio of 29.9 to 1.

Newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, war criminals are given full state funerals, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Synergetik's national animal is the Purple Finch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sparric Christianity.

Synergetik is ranked 201,464th in the world and 3rd in Union of the Kind Ones for Nudest, with 32.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
