The Emirate of Cyzixraqab is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, devout population of 478 million Cyzixriae have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Algodoņa Sanctuara. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cyzixril economy, worth 22.6 trillion Cyzix Riyalpoundinarhams a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,335 Cyzix Riyalpoundinarhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, and pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyzixraqab's national animal is the Cryogenian sea sponge, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cyzixraqab is ranked 39,674th in the world and 77th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 66.08 Effective Tax Rate.
