The Commonwealth of Cyleia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Silas Adar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.339 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 receive no funds. 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 4,829 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 391,404 racus, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Cyleian weed picker are way up, t-shirts displaying a photo of Silas Adar performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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 2,744th in the world and 161st in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,435.61 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
