LeaderOperator Phillips


The Collectivist Cyberocracy of Styklelilere is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Operator Phillips with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 7.548 billion Styklelilereans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sumellnrern. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Styklelilerean economy, worth a remarkable 2,588 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 342,877 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, Styklelilereans incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Styklelilere's national animal is the Alsatian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Styklelilere is ranked 7,683rd in the world and 228th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.68 Years.
