Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Decaying Empire of Cyrod is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Samael Cyrod with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, parental licensing program, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.905 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 Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barathrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrodoon economy, worth a remarkable 7,573 trillion Cyrod Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 636,182 Cyrod Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,693,707 per year while the poor average 97,062, a ratio of 27.8 to 1.

Daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses'. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Perennialism.

Cyrod is ranked 18,611th in the world and 46th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
