AnimalGlaucus Atlanticus

The Kingdom Republic of Ceretis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harry Callahan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.987 billion Ceretians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The powerhouse Ceretisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,853 trillion Orichalcums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 185,616 Orichalcums, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 687,329 per year while the poor average 35,296, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

They say that Harry Callahan's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Glaucus Atlanticuses and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime is almost non-existent. Ceretis's national animal is the Glaucus Atlanticus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ceretis is ranked 40,263rd in the world and 2,091st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,967.79 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
