The National Monarchist State of Cermiersia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 517 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 91.0%.

The strong Cermiersian economy, worth 44.4 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 85,874 Falktikes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping. 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 69,188th in the world and 617th in the Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1.30 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
