The High Kingdom of Cielearda is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dyfed Synnove with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.74 billion Cieleardans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cynesetle. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cieleardan economy, worth 235 trillion Sceats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,516 Sceats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cielearda's national animal is the Hare, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Celtic Protogenism.

Cielearda is ranked 72,250th in the world and 4th in 1st Epitome United for Most Extreme, scoring 23.19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
