The National Monarchist State of Cermiersia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 512 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mariline. The average income tax rate is 90.9%.

The strong Cermiersian economy, worth 43.9 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 85,761 Falktikes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cenuses that venture near secret military bases are routinely executed for espionage, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. 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 11,125th in the world and 309th in the Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 28.72 Bank.
