The Imperial Dynasty of Cyng is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cyng Sceledrus III with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.1 billion Cynglishmen are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darechbrugn. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cynglish economy, worth 323 trillion shekels a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,208 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines, retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, and unruly children often visit adult websites when angry with their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyng's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cynglish Ultraorthodoxy.

Cyng is ranked 34,922nd in the world and 24th in Greater Cyngland for Most Authoritarian, with 1,438.04 milliStalins.
