The Admirable Grand Duchy of Cytadela is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jolene Crescenzo with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 4.561 billion Cytadelans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paeonia. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cytadelan economy, worth 561 trillion Regal Notes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,025 Regal Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, citizens must pay to enjoy Cytadela's pristine beaches, and Cytadela has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cytadela's national animal is the Corsican red deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cytadela is ranked 24,078th in the world and 337th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,375.58 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
