The Empire of Celannica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Hirohito Zetta with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.573 billion Celans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeda. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Celan economy, worth a remarkable 1,729 trillion New Order Fireans 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 310,290 New Order Fireans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Celannica's national animal is the Silver Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Urthium.

Celannica is ranked 147,479th in the world and 5,399th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -427.97 on the Hayek Index.
