Population2.032 billion



The Republic of Cypher is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Binix with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.032 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, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeon. The average income tax rate is 21.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth 303 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 149,564 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Builders across Cypher are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, t-shirts displaying a photo of Binix performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cypher's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cypher is ranked 58,653rd in the world and 3,227th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,936.05 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
