The Nomadic Peoples of Cekovia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 533 million Cekovians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Cekovian economy, worth 8.30 trillion Rubles 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 black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 15,578 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has quashed a recent coup attempt, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cekovia's national animal is the Taymen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cekovia is ranked 198,108th in the world and 13th in Vaporwave Paradise for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.65 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
