The Most Serene Republic of Cypress Cannon is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.461 billion Cypress Cannonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cypress Cannonian economy, worth 107 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,387 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cypress Cannon's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cypress Cannon is ranked 2,912th in the world and 1st in Frozen Circle for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 416.35 Bank.
