The Republic of Ceden is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Albert Jones Hoffing with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.137 billion Cedenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 2,282 trillion kronors a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 280,469 kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Cedenian as 'your finger, you fool', and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. 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 515th in the world and 11th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,059.51 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
