The Syrian Arab Republic of The Great Expanses is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Bashar al-Assad with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.842 billion Syrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damascus. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Syrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,820 trillion Syrian lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 205,904 Syrian lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", on-duty Air The Great Expanses flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Expanses's national animal is the Syrian Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

The Great Expanses is ranked 102,432nd in the world and 29th in The Geopolitics Roleplay Region for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 738.79 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
