The Admirable Grand Duchy of Cytadela is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jolene Crescenzo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.209 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paeonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cytadelan economy, worth 416 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 129,635 Regal Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 408,444 per year while the poor average 31,459, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

Jolene Crescenzo lights cigars with a hundred-Regal Note bill, school children declare that teachers "may confiscate our toys but they can never take our FREEDOM", houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. 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 18,928th in the world and 263rd in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 129,635.77 Standard Monetary Units.
