Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pharaonic Empire of Cyrod is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Pharaonic Master with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.511 billion Cyrodoons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ar-Pharazawn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrodoon economy, worth a remarkable 8,902 trillion Cyrod Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 658,884 Cyrod Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,485,677 per year while the poor average 121,651, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cyrod's national animal is the Windigo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cyrodoon Church.

Cyrod is ranked 26,212th in the world and 100th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Authoritarian, with 1 Stalins.
