The Despondency of Cekoviu is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vioda Toitsevizki with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.889 billion Cekovians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sekuta. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cekovian economy, worth 723 trillion ilais a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,786 ilais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, posters on 'Cekovian Values' advise against being proud of Cekoviu, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Cekoviu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cekoviu's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cekoviu is ranked 2,591st in the world and 4th in Antarctica for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.9 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
