The Stone of Sylestone is a massive, genial nation, ruled by BILAL with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.495 billion Sylestoneans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bilal City. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sylestonean economy, worth 517 trillion Chookie dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,194 Chookie dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime is totally unknown. Sylestone's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sylestone is ranked 5,890th in the world and 2nd in Lardyland for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,293.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
