The Republic of Cydoni is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Yukimori Naoaki with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and national health service. The hard-nosed population of 2.651 billion Cydonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asayako. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Cydonian economy, worth 185 trillion Cydonian Marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,792 Cydonian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise President Yukimori Naoaki on Cydoni's coulrophobia epidemic, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, religious education is a new government priority, and women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cydoni's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cydoni is ranked 10,309th in the world and 16th in Thaecia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 8,901.96 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
