Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infinite Empire of Cybus1 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Mercer with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.637 billion Cybusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,676 trillion Cybusian Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 211,775 Cybusian Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 748,298 per year while the poor average 43,315, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Cybusian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cybus1's national animal is the Volcra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mercerism.

Cybus1 is ranked 41,986th in the world and 7th in Empire of Andrew for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,338.12 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
