The Confederated Allied Republic of Siokania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hayden Mccallum with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.441 billion Siokanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cedriwyn. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Siokanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,526 trillion Sinoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,175 Sinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, the government has the power to seize property at will, and commemoration of the Great New Western Empire War costs almost as much as the war itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Siokania's national animal is the Siokanian Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Greek Orthodox Church of Siokania.

Siokania is ranked 12,691st in the world and 61st in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 88.64 on the Human Development Index.
