The Platonic Utopia of Scyra is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Guru Oscar Scyra with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.907 billion Scyrans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veyes. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Scyran economy, worth 250 trillion Arums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 131,479 Arums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scyra's national animal is the Gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Greco-Buddhism.

Scyra is ranked 6,536th in the world and 104th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,269.86 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
