The Independent Ocean Platform of Sycona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Syconan Senate with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.027 billion Syconans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of conoss. The average income tax rate is 26.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Syconan economy, worth 160 trillion quid a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,465 quid, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, priests are being drafted by the church load, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and diplomats are always trying to convince other nations to adopt l33t speak. Crime is totally unknown. Sycona's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sycona is ranked 16,081st in the world and 566th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 115.19 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
