Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Infinite Empire of Cybus1 is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Alexander Mercer with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.979 billion Cybusians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 76.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,714 trillion Cybusian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 171,796 Cybusian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, most citizens in Cybus1 are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, the Cybusian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 4th in Empire of Andrew and 68,996th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 18 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
