Cybernetic Socialist Republics

Population10.146 billion

LeaderPresident William B Draeger


The Union of Cybernetic Socialist Republics is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President William B Draeger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.146 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic Socialist Republicsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,459 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 143,836 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, the new electoral law has been nicknamed 'Jim Eagle', and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. Crime is totally unknown. Cybernetic Socialist Republics's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cybernetic Socialist Republics is ranked 55,798th in the world and 46th in The Internationale for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,767.69 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
