The Commonality of Syara is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Executive Radovan Kostović with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.34 billion Syarans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zovahr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Syaran economy, worth a remarkable 3,504 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 214,485 Dinars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,278,885 per year while the poor average 16,433, a ratio of 77.8 to 1.

Parents receive hefty fines for telling kids to eat their vegetables, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library, and reddish-brown is the new black. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syara's national animal is the Syaran Red Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zobethos.

Syara is ranked 23,468th in the world and 3rd in Tyran for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,724.86 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
