The Empire of Sycra is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Nicolai II with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.722 billion Sycrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskva. The average income tax rate is 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sycran economy, worth a remarkable 1,622 trillion Sycran Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 241,389 Sycran Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The new universal healthcare system has been dubbed Tsar Nicolai II-care by its detractors, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, there's no weight to modern politics, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sycra's national animal is the Sycran Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Sycra is ranked 7,304th in the world and 3rd in New Democratic Union for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 31,835.9 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
