The Grand Empire of Cyclonistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Maddie with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.482 billion Cyclonistanis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maddiesville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.8%.

The all-consuming Cyclonistani economy, worth 208 trillion Cyclone Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 83,940 Cyclone Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 278,921 per year while the poor average 18,839, a ratio of 14.8 to 1.

Employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cyclonistan's national animal is the Coral Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Paganism.

Cyclonistan is ranked 140,919th in the world and 4,526th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -8.37 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
