The Federation of Silvaterrana is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Valin Schrönt with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.396 billion Silvaterranans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Litlinn. The average income tax rate is 65.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Silvaterranan economy, worth 150 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 108,020 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, Valin Schrönt has more friends than ever before, and chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Litlinn's playgrounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silvaterrana's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sheepism.

Silvaterrana is ranked 14,298th in the world and 64th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 87.53 on the Human Development Index.
