Cermerium

The Free Land of Cermerium is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its fear of technology, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 906 million Cermeriumians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cermeriumian economy, worth 51.4 trillion Leaveses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 56,692 Leaveses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, neighboring nations are tired of Cermerium's big fish stories, and Cermerium's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cermerium's national animal is the Wild Homo Sapiens, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cermerium is ranked 8,485th in the world and 101st in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
