The Republic of Cydoni is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Yukimori Naoaki with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 6.387 billion Cydonians 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asayako. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Cydonian economy, worth 460 trillion Cydonian Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,045 Cydonian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cydoni's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cydoni is ranked 204,840th in the world and 322nd in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 37.95 insults per minute.
