The United States of Sulivannia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 589 million Sulivannians 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorke. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sulivannian economy, worth 48.1 trillion Sulivannian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,634 Sulivannian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Sulivannians, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sulivannia's national animal is the grey wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sulivannia is ranked 199,581st in the world and 448th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -7.75 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
