The Republic of SI-3 is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 8.315 billion SI-3ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong SI-3ian economy, worth 489 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,885 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

It is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SI-3's national animal is the Death's-head Hawkmoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

SI-3 is ranked 10,234th in the world and 1st in Spanish Inquisition for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,263.16 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
