The Independent Ocean Platform of Sycona is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Syconan Senate with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.542 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 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Syconan economy, worth 257 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 167,292 quid, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown. Sycona's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sycona is ranked 89,991st in the world and 3,873rd in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 187.52 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
