The Matriarchy of Syracon is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 588 million Syraconians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leeuwenstad. The average income tax rate is 62.5%.

The powerhouse Syraconian economy, worth 61.1 trillion Syraconian Dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 103,924 Syraconian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, and legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syracon's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Syracon is ranked 115,386th in the world and 4,830th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.22 on the Rand Index.
