OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Island of Cyrenean is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.589 billion Cyreneanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyreneai. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Cyrenean. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyrenean's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the beah.

Cyrenean is ranked 1,003rd in 10000 Islands and 120,142nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -32 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
