The Cynosure Temple

Population11.074 billion

CapitalTemple City


The Grand Master of The Cynosure Temple is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.074 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 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Cynosurian economy, worth 470 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 42,468 Elisions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. 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 140,936th in the world and 15th in Cynosure for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.13 Crimes Per Hour.
