The Cynosure Temple

Population11.666 billion

CapitalTemple City


The Grand Master of The Cynosure Temple is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.666 billion Cynosurians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temple City. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Cynosurian economy, worth 496 trillion Elisions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 42,591 Elisions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cynosure Temple's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jedi.

The Cynosure Temple is ranked 98,322nd in the world and 38th in Cynosure for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 206.34 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
