The Admirable Grand Duchy of Cytadela is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jolene Crescenzo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5.013 billion Cytadelans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paeonia. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cytadelan economy, worth 602 trillion Regal Notes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,213 Regal Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, citizens must pay to enjoy Cytadela's pristine beaches, and Cytadela has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cytadela's national animal is the Corsican red deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cytadela is ranked 181,547th in the world and 832nd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.88 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
