The Corporate Republic of Synne Industries is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 733 million Synnians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ancypastan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Synnian economy, worth 118 trillion Crbbles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 161,995 Crbbles, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Synne Industries's national animal is the Harpy Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Synne Industries is ranked 150,714th in the world and 94th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Pacifist, with 4.29 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
