The Concordant Stratum of The Cypher Nine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Council Chairman Cypher One with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.157 billion Cypherians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cypher One - Administrative Block. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cypher Ninean economy, worth a remarkable 1,852 trillion Fulcrums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 227,082 Fulcrums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, and politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests. Crime is totally unknown. The Cypher Nine's national animal is the Voltaic Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Cypher Nine is ranked 1,491st in the world and 53rd in Forest for Best Weather, with 528 Meters Of Sunlight.
