The Distributist Kingdom of Silverius is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Bélizaire with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.034 billion Silverians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lafayette. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The enormous but inefficient Silverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion piastres a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 68,477 piastres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, the Silverian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", posters on 'Silverian Values' advise against being proud of Silverius, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany King Bélizaire to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silverius's national animal is the crawfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Silverius is ranked 169,027th in the world and 40th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Rudest Citizens, with 32.25 Insults Per Minute.
