The Jarl of Charles Cerebella is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.844 billion Charles Cerebellans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Copenhagen. The average income tax rate is 67%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Charles Cerebella's radio stations, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Charles Cerebella's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Sterling.
