The SybilSocialist Megacluster of The City of Guelph is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Banks with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, daily referendums, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.422 billion Guelphites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guelph. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Guelphian economy, worth a remarkable 6,269 trillion Dollar Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 548,857 Dollar Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Guelphian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the fate of the world literally rests on President Banks's fingers, and polychromatic seas of leaves blanket the ground while sewers and drain pipes are clogged by their detritus. Crime is almost non-existent. The City of Guelph's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is democratic ownership of the means.

The City of Guelph is ranked 255,291st in the world and 6,939th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 11.48 percentage of bribes refused.
