The Red Panda Clan of Syvani is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Meraggles with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.21 billion Syvanites enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nisazechoali. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Syvanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,379 trillion Lumyns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 222,132 Lumyns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,039,205 per year while the poor average 28,365, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

The government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing Meraggles to progressive thinkers, and the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Syvani's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Syvani is ranked 235,508th in the world and 465th in Forest for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.31 bananas ingested per day.
