The Incorporated Entities of Cyrixia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Cyrix with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.956 billion Cyrixians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of N-Pulse. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Cyrixian economy, worth a remarkable 3,675 trillion gralats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 462,022 gralats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,609,858 per year while the poor average 96,541, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.
Corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, the Hanging Gardens account for half of N-Pulse's water use, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cyrixia's national animal is the jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.
