The National Monarchist State of Cermiersia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 559 million Cermiersians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariline. The average income tax rate is 91.4%.

The strong Cermiersian economy, worth 52.7 trillion Falktikes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 94,357 Falktikes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Public executions just aren't the cheery spectacles they once were, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, every workday begins with group therapy, and millions of Cermiersians are excellent swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cermiersia's national animal is the Cenus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cermiersia is ranked 23,751st in the world and 526th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,037.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
