The Republic of Cypheri is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Douglas J Hunley with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.753 billion Cypherians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zion. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 210,918 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cypheri's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Science.

Cypheri is ranked 2,263rd in the world and 60th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 66.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
