The Corporations of New Cybercity is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Beverage Industry CEOs with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.906 billion City Dwellers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of California. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Californian economy, worth 845 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 172,294 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, rumor has it that Beverage Industry CEOs has won three lotteries in a row, destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare bitcoins, and the army spends more time producing 'romantic videos' than actually training soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Cybercity's national animal is the Mocking-jay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Cybercity is ranked 5,636th in the world and 229th in Balder for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 60.3 Whatever.
