The Republic of Cypheri is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Douglas J Hunley with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.509 billion Cypherians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth a remarkable 3,532 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 282,423 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 1,578th in the world and 44th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,632.35 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
