Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pharaonic Empire of Cyrod is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Pharaonic Master with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.997 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 56.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrodoon economy, worth a remarkable 8,551 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 657,957 Cyrod Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,482,180 per year while the poor average 121,480, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

Voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Cyrod, 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, and panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies. 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 12,467th in the world and 30th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,562.63 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
