Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population2.57 billion



The Republic of Cypher is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Binix with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.57 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 prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeon. The average income tax rate is 21.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth 389 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 151,718 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, baiting is a national sport, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cypher's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cypher is ranked 12,312th in the world and 714th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.71 on the Human Development Index.
