The Grand Master of The Cynosure Temple is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.118 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 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Cynosurian economy, worth 387 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 42,488 Elisions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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 17,955th in the world and 2nd in Cynosure for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 77.06 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
