The Republic of Cypheri is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Douglas J Hunley with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.395 billion Cypherians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypherian economy, worth a remarkable 2,050 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 244,196 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cities are engulfed by smog, Douglas J Hunley's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Science.

Cypheri is ranked 205,364th in the world and 7,629th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -35.36 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
