The Once Upon A Time of Kyzikos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.347 billion Kyzikosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Kyzikosian economy, worth 254 trillion francolinos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 24,588 francolinos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyzikos's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
