The Grand Master of The Cynosure Temple is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.013 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 339 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 42,423 Elisions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, the nation leads Cynosure in per capita stalking, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. 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 117,520th in the world and 17th in Cynosure for Fattest Citizens, with 8.64 Obesity Rate.
