The Republic of Cypheri is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Douglas J Hunley with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.589 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 government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zion. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth a remarkable 2,376 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 247,800 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Douglas J Hunley wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 652nd in the world and 21st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 27,083.59 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
