The Cynosure Temple

Population14.531 billion

CapitalTemple City


The Grand Master of The Cynosure Temple is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.531 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 630 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 43,370 Elisions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, Cynosurian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism. 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 118,736th in the world and 46th in Cynosure for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 214.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
