The Free Land of Ceou is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.791 billion Ceouans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ceouville. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ceouan economy, worth 144 trillion compliments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 80,567 compliments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is totally unknown. Ceou's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ceou is ranked 133,400th in the world and 4,481st in Osiris for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 409.04 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
