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 notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.736 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, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 7,461 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 635,820 Cyrod Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,692,174 per year while the poor average 97,007, a ratio of 27.8 to 1.

Every week is blindness awareness week, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, and vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue. 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 727th in the world and 6th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 28,357.35 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
