The People's Republic of Bolshoy Syr is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Adams with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.408 billion Bolshoy Syrans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adamsgrad. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bolshoy Syrian economy, worth 129 trillion Karlats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 91,920 Karlats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious education is a new government priority, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bolshoy Syr's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bolshoy Syr is ranked 19,198th in the world and 59th in The United Federations for Most Developed, scoring 76.14 on the Human Development Index.
