The Republic of Ciguayo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Maximiliano with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.731 billion Ciguayoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maximiliano. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.3%.

The all-consuming Ciguayoan economy, worth 195 trillion Ciguayo Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 71,603 Ciguayo Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, and the secret ingredient is love (and MSG). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ciguayo's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ciguayo is ranked 140,434th in the world and 6,564th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.39 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
