The Empire of Syrixces is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Syrixces with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.317 billion Syrixcesians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hammerfell. The average income tax rate is 30.8%.

The very strong Syrixcesian economy, worth 927 trillion Golden Sovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 111,530 Golden Sovs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, it is a silent spring in Syrixces, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Syrixces's national animal is the White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Immortal Worship.

Syrixces is ranked 138,914th in the world and 4,438th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 183.81 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
