The Protectorate of Cuyan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tiroshi Cuyan with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.365 billion Cuyas love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mandoa. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cuyanian economy, worth 125 trillion Ijaats a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,589 Ijaats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nose plugs are the latest Cuyanian fashion accessory, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cuyan's national animal is the Boma, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cuyan is ranked 48,666th in the world and 2,475th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,160.89 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
