The Angelus Vox Populi of SilverTower is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.367 billion SilverTowerians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.3%.

The all-consuming SilverTowerian economy, worth a remarkable 2,755 trillion Halicarnassuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 108,622 Halicarnassuses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 621,892 per year while the poor average 9,159, a ratio of 67.9 to 1.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and Leader has just been declared ruler of SilverTower in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. SilverTower's national animal is the White Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Hope.

SilverTower is ranked 38,349th in the world and 7th in Ordo Imperialia for Rudest Citizens, with 77.45 Insults Per Minute.
