The CRISPR Zombie Researchers of The Cypher Nine is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Council Chairman Cypher One with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.946 billion Cypherians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypher One - Administrative Block. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypher Ninean economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 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 217,651 Fulcrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across The Cypher Nine, and the Cypher Ninean Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is totally unknown. The Cypher Nine's national animal is the Aluminum Sea Basilisk, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Cypher Nine is ranked 166th in the world and 3rd in Forest for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 113,174.6 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
