Cybernetic Socialist Republics

Population2.041 billion

LeaderPresident William B Draeger


The Union of Cybernetic Socialist Republics is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President William B Draeger with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.041 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic Socialist Republicsian economy, worth 287 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 140,661 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 398,738 per year while the poor average 39,655, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and much of Cybernetic Socialist Republics's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime is well under control. 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 206,347th in the world and 439th in The Internationale for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 17.86 Tourists Per Hour.
