The Free Territory of Federated Communes of Cygnus X-1 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.472 billion Communards are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nojysz Begon. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cygnian economy, worth 230 trillion Cygnus Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is 93,242 Cygnus Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', meat-eating is frowned upon, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. Crime is totally unknown. Federated Communes of Cygnus X-1's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Federated Communes of Cygnus X-1 is ranked 229,525th in the world and 113th in The United Federations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
