The Concordant Stratum of The Cypher Nine is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Council Chairman Cypher One with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.532 billion Cypherians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypher One - Administrative Block. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypher Ninean economy, worth a remarkable 2,000 trillion Fulcrums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 234,486 Fulcrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and the doctor has cold hands. Crime is totally unknown. The Cypher Nine's national animal is the Voltaic Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Cypher Nine is ranked 135,916th in the world and 296th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 904.15 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
