Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Cyrod is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Samael Cyrod with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.177 billion Cyrodoons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barathrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrodoon economy, worth a remarkable 6,037 trillion Cyrod Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 657,854 Cyrod Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,716,694 per year while the poor average 104,733, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cyrod's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Perennialism.

Cyrod is ranked 3rd in The Alliance of Dictators and 53rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 905 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
