Cybran States

Population10.522 billion

LeaderHigh Marshal Sydney Alexander


The Empire of Cybran States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Marshal Sydney Alexander with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.522 billion Cybrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyr. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybran Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,979 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 378,178 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a Sparrow, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", pedants defending High Marshal Sydney Alexander observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing, and a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cybran States's national animal is the Sparrow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cybran States is ranked 74,800th in the world and 83rd in Declansburg for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,977.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
