The Empire of The Syca is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Talo Vira with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.229 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rann. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Syca economy, worth 582 trillion Nones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 180,425 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 Vorina Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Syca is ranked 148,372nd in the world and 8,779th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
