The Kingdom of Cernu is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 297 million Cernuans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 31.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Cernuan economy, worth 7.94 trillion oxen a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,732 oxen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, if a tree falls in the forest Leader is personally notified, and recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cernu's national animal is the horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cernu is ranked 89,648th in the world and 3,991st in Balder for Longest Average Lifespans, with 72.37 Years.
