The Holy Empire of Silver Camel is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, prohibition of alcohol, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.229 billion Silver Camelians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.4%.

The all-consuming Silver Camelian economy, worth 455 trillion Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,798 Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Leader wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silver Camel's national animal is the Dromedary Camel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Silver Camel is ranked 161,645th in the world and 2nd in Mount Fuji for Fattest Citizens, with 8.75 Obesity Rate.
