The Commonwealth of Cyleia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Silas Adar with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.137 billion Cyleians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erare. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cyleian economy, worth a remarkable 4,687 trillion racus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 386,249 racus, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Silas Adar can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cyleia's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cyleia is ranked 8,299th in the world and 165th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 1,663.66560192 Days.
