The Pagan Empire of Syriusz is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Belial with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.858 billion Syriuszians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orion. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Syriuszian economy, worth 179 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,777 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syriusz's national animal is the Bies, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Syriusz is ranked 52,126th in the world and 2,739th in Balder for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,211.7 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
