The Sultanate of Kyrenaia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sultana Razia with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.18 billion Kyrenaians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utica. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kyrenaian economy, worth a remarkable 1,061 trillion Barqas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,647 Barqas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, reddish-brown is the new black, and many friends and relatives of Sultana Razia have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyrenaia's national animal is the Caracal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is secularized.

Kyrenaia is ranked 158,301st in the world and 1st in The Endless Sands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.26 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
