The Infinite Empire of Cybus1 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Mercer with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.007 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. The average income tax rate is 78.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,992 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 221,727 Cybusian Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, behind every local dictator is a Cybusian advisor whispering in their ear, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. 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 7,932nd in the world and 6th in Empire of Andrew for Most Developed, scoring 88.71 on the Human Development Index.
