The Cyberian Network - Data Panel
|Definition||Subversive cyberspace empire|
|Symbol||A mirror sphere with electronic digits|
|Founded||Varies; generally the establishment of old World Wide Web in 24 a.t. and the earlier military Arpanet, are commonly cited.|
|Psyche, Art, Culture||Metapsychology: Holistic fractal communications networked consciousness based on superbright or posthuman processing power. It should be noted that the Paradigm members have a vastly different psychology than the optimized population, heavily augmented and likely memetically consolidated. The lack of any defectors has been interpreted as evidence for memetic coercion or extreme consolidation into networked intelligences. The dominant architectonic feature is the NanoFractal Seedship. |
Culture and Art: Anything digital, virtual, or simulated goes.
Language: A number of specific protocols are used.
|Territory and Population||Current Territory: A huge number of distributed virch universes along the main population centers of the Inner Sphere and more centralised outer volume regions.|
Capital: None known.
Other Important Systems: the so-called the Cyberia Sphere, a cluster of populous and highly automated planets and computronium megastructures and dyson nodes in the vicinity of Arcturus.
Current Core Population: Unknown
Population Breakdown (est.): 71% nanocyborg superbright and uploads, 21% miscellaneous aioid and ai; 3% full posthuman; 3% sophont or transophont alife; 2% other.
|Government and Administration||Government: Varies by cybercosm. |
Administrative Divisions: A large number of cybercosms and virch universes.
National Holidays: None (left to indigenous virtuals).
Constitution: Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace 9v. 1.0 Old Earth - information age, since updated and revised, currently v.2,490,712.950
|Economics and Infrastructure||Currency: Partitioned computing power and processing sharing are believed to be used. |
Major Industries: Computronium design and construction, virch templates, digital creations, sentient and subsentient codescripts, databases, information handling systems, software of any kind.
Major Stargate Nexi: A large number of standard wormhole links include dedicated high bandwidth cyberian channels.
Military Expenditures: percent of GDP: not applicable
