The Syca

Population7.415 billion

LeaderEmpress Dari Xan


The Empire of The Syca is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Empress Dari Xan with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.415 billion Syca love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rann. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Syca economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion Nones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 173,794 Nones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, The Syca has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Syca's national animal is the Viona, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Syca is ranked 217,156th in the world and 10,063rd in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 8 Insults Per Minute.
