Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Infinite Empire of Cybus1 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Mercer with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.973 billion Cybusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cybusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,173 trillion Cybusian Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,761 Cybusian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians debate whether caffeine is too addictive for the public, bungee jumpers rarely go splat, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cybus1's national animal is the Volcra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mercerism.

Cybus1 is ranked 9th in Empire of Andrew and 9,481st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 295 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
