The Federal Republic of Siri42 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 273 million Siri42ians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Siri42ian economy, worth 20.5 trillion Siricoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 75,053 Siricoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Siri42's national animal is the Platypus.

Siri42 is ranked 26,878th in the world and 665th in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,623.54 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
