The Empire of Ceti Islands is a massive, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.108 billion Cetians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mob on the Sea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ceti Islandsian economy, worth 232 trillion cetian pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 110,282 cetian pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Mob On The Sea make great practice for foreign snipers, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Mob on the Sea to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ceti Islands's national animal is the green-tail whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ceti Islands is ranked 37,567th in the world and 6th in Atlantic for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12,635.54 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
