The Free Land of Neo Cydonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.697 billion Cydonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Star. The average income tax rate is 43.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cydonian economy, worth 606 trillion Mars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 106,475 Mars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Cydonia's national animal is the Tuatara, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neo Cydonia is ranked 140,981st in the world and 1st in The Storage Center for Fattest Citizens, with 9.96 Obesity Rate.
