The Federal Republic of Cyprisia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by William Wynter with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.361 billion Cyprisians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlita. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Cyprisian economy, worth 90.3 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,371 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyprisia's national animal is the cyprisian eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cyprisia is ranked 77,731st in the world and 1,239th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 90.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
