The Matriarchy of Cygnet XIV is a massive, safe nation, ruled by A Giggling Computer with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, devout population of 2.054 billion Cygnians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haurok Leh-Keh. The average income tax rate is 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cygnian economy, worth 106 trillion Federation Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,832 Federation Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cygnet XIV's national animal is the Man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Misandry.

Cygnet XIV is ranked 150,100th in the world and 130th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Nudest, with 101 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
