Cybernetic Socialist Republics

Population3.466 billion

LeaderPresident William B Draeger


The Union of Cybernetic Socialist Republics is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President William B Draeger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.466 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic Socialist Republicsian economy, worth 498 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 143,825 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, the new electoral law has been nicknamed 'Jim Eagle', and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. Crime is totally unknown. Cybernetic Socialist Republics's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cybernetic Socialist Republics is ranked 73,747th in the world and 86th in The Internationale for Largest Populations, with 3.47 billion Capita.
