The Republican Army State of Cypress1840 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Penrod with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.954 billion Cypressians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centralia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypressian economy, worth a remarkable 1,486 trillion Republican Army Mints a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 186,909 Republican Army Mints, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, surveillance cameras are banned, former first wives now find themselves mothers to twenty children, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cypress1840's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cypress1840 is ranked 17,091st in the world and 5th in Republican Army for Most Corrupt Governments, with 56.18 Kickbacks Per Hour.
