The Infinite Empire of Cybus1 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Mercer with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, enslaved workforce, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.242 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 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,025 trillion Cybusian Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 212,416 Cybusian Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 677,775 per year while the poor average 50,608, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

Grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and urbanites are banned from bucolic settings for safety concerns. 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 23,747th in the world and 2nd in Empire of Andrew for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 13.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
