The Constitutional Monarchy of Cyrtenes is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sarah the Quizzical with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.983 billion Cyrtenesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercia. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrtenesian economy, worth 469 trillion Gelds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,261 Gelds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, and street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyrtenes's national animal is the White Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cyrtenes is ranked 26,245th in the world and 531st in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 188.02 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
