Location: The Alliance of Dictators


The Despotic Pathocracy of Cyrod is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Master with an iron fist, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.974 billion Cyrodoon Servitors are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inner Barathrum. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, billions of Cyrod Emperors are being blown on orbital weapons development, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Cyrod's national animal is the Black Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Cyrodoon Immisericoricism, and its currency is the Cyrod Emperor.

Cyrod is ranked 199th in The Alliance of Dictators and 111,212th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -24 on the Hayek Index.
