The United Industrial Communes of Cephesylon is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Bukhahno Juanos with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.992 billion Cephesians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cephesylonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,008 trillion Cefezties 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 168,296 Cefezties, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lottery winners spend most of their money on security, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cephesylon's national animal is the Cephesian Double Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cephesian JEBism.

Cephesylon is ranked 83,748th in the world and 2,782nd in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 20.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
