The Land of Precious Metals and of Silverbugs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 32.618 billion Silverbugsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Environment, although Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Silverbugsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,296 trillion silver eagles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 39,736 silver eagles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, Silverbugs has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Silverbugs's national animal is the gold eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Silverbugs is ranked 47,709th in the world and 13th in The Atheist Empire for Most Developed, scoring 66.25 on the Human Development Index.
