The Constitutional Monarchy of Cyrtenes is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sarah the Quizzical with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.655 billion Cyrtenesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercia. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrtenesian economy, worth 828 trillion Gelds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,774 Gelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. 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 204,099th in the world and 6,464th in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring -177.26 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
