The Federal Islamic Republic of Cereskia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Taliq Agung with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.194 billion Cereskians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrana. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cereskian economy, worth 392 trillion Cereskian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,768 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A popular phrase is "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we eat, drink and be merry some more", Taliq Agung has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cereskia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Cereskia is ranked 28,780th in the world and 967th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 274,933 Standard Monetary Units.
