The Imperial Union of Cylithia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Valintöv Talkav with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.431 billion Cylithians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlatchco. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cylithian economy, worth 610 trillion Övɪnklovs a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,841 Övɪnklovs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, the nation burns bridges with neighbours who burn their rainforest, and the new hit series "Cylithia's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cylithia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atterlarism.

Cylithia is ranked 269,434th in the world and 382nd in KAISERREICH for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.27 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
