The Republic of Cypher is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Binix with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.788 billion Cypherians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeon. The average income tax rate is 26.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth 578 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 152,623 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Child labor has been outlawed, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cypher's national animal is the Garuda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cypher is ranked 12,901st in the world and 604th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 152,623.73 Standard Monetary Units.
