Cygnus Maximus

The State of Cygnus Maximus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.571 billion Cygnus Maximusians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The strong Cygnus Maximusian economy, worth 846 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is 58,105 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 395,047 per year while the poor average 3,122, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, voting is voluntary, Cygnus Maximus has designated Westminster as its capital city, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Cygnus Maximus in an international press conference. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cygnus Maximus's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cygnus Maximus is ranked 113,900th in the world and 1st in Cygnus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,640.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
