The Commonwealth of Cyleia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Silas Adar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.553 billion Cyleians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Administration are also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erare. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cyleian economy, worth a remarkable 5,424 trillion racus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 400,214 racus, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', babies are a small but significant export, and diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cyleia's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cyleia is ranked 213,297th in the world and 6,674th in Osiris for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13.86 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
