The Capitalist Alliance of The-CID is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by CID with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 30.058 billion CIDians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-CID. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient CIDian economy, worth an astonishing 11,084 trillion Golden Shares a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 368,755 Golden Shares, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,498,161 per year while the poor average 60,338, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

Autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, diplomatic cables about CID have suddenly been very flattering, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The-CID's national animal is the Prancing Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Church.

The-CID is ranked 245,374th in the world and 236th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -46.37 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
