The Constitutional Monarchy of Cyrtenes is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sarah the Quizzical with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.447 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, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercia. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrtenesian economy, worth 789 trillion Gelds a year, is highly 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 93,510 Gelds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. 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 215,958th in the world and 6,970th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 6.95 Obesity Rate.
