The Constitutional Monarchy of Cyrtenes is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sarah the Quizzical with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.744 billion Cyrtenesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercia. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrtenesian economy, worth 669 trillion Gelds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,300 Gelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, public parks are littered with cigarette butts, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyrtenes's national animal is the White Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cyrtenes is ranked 15,775th in the world and 341st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,753.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
