The Kingdom of Cienakin is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 288 million Cienakinians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.3%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Cienakinian economy, worth 10.8 trillion ciens 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 black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 37,442 ciens, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Leader day after day, and government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cienakin's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cienakin is ranked 120,072nd in the world and 690th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,594.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
