The Republic of Ceden is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Albert Jones Hoffing with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.069 billion Cedenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sentinel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Cedenian economy, worth a remarkable 5,107 trillion kronors a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 363,023 kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, reddish-brown is the new black, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Ceden, and the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ceden's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ceden is ranked 671st in the world and 8th in the West Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 101.17 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
