The Cypher Nine

Population2.36 billion

CapitalCypher One - Administrative Block
LeaderCouncil Chairman Cypher One


The Concordant Stratum of The Cypher Nine is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Council Chairman Cypher One with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.36 billion Cypherians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare 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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cypher Ninean economy, worth 438 trillion Polyglots 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,826 Polyglots, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown. The Cypher Nine's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Cypher Nine is ranked 26,480th in the world and 59th in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,544.78 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
