The People's Republic of Syndicus is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 638 million Syndicusians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Syndicusian economy, worth 48.0 trillion Sans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is 75,241 Sans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Syndicusian language, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Syndicus's national animal is the Bearded Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Syndicus is ranked 3,612th in the world and 439th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 34 Valid Endorsements.
