The People's Republic of Cedoria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman Treavor Sorenson with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.044 billion Cedorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poras. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Cedorian economy, worth a remarkable 4,162 trillion Cedorian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 376,914 Cedorian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire entry for Cedoria in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cedoria's national animal is the Giant Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Cedoria is ranked 166,665th in the world and 328th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.81 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
