Population3.726 billion



The Republic of Cypher is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Binix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.726 billion Cypherians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeon. The average income tax rate is 25.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth 569 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 152,720 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Child labor has been outlawed, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cypher's national animal is the Garuda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cypher is ranked 72,904th in the world and 4,213th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 89.39 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
