The ₉ₒᵥₑᵣₙₘₑₙₜ ᵣₑᵥₑₙᵤₑ of Cerata is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The holy coconut tree with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 1.524 billion things 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gold course hole 16. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ceratan economy, worth 204 trillion IKEAŠ brand doormats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,130 IKEAŠ brand doormats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Cerata, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cerata's national animal is the Headcrab, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is friendly neighborhood LiMu cult.

Cerata is ranked 54,129th in the world and 28th in The Vincence Empire for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,797.08 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
