The Endless Kitten Occupation of Silver Kittens is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Silverstream with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.065 billion Silver Kittens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitten Basket. The average income tax rate is 50.9%.

The thriving Silver Kittensian economy, worth 393 trillion yarns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,937 yarns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silver Kittens's national animal is the silvercat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kitty Worship.

Silver Kittens is ranked 33,928th in the world and 9th in Deliverance for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 143.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
