The Holy Empire of Syrisia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and public floggings. The devout population of 208 million Syrisians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Syrisian economy, worth 14.0 trillion Gemstones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 67,426 Gemstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime is totally unknown. Syrisia's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Syrisia is ranked 86,336th in the world and 231st in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,529.18 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
