The Republic of Cypheri is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Douglas J Hunley with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.601 billion Cypherians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zion. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth a remarkable 1,478 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,978 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cypheri's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Science.

Cypheri is ranked 44,604th in the world and 1,838th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
