The Federation of Cerebrosus is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.334 billion Cerebrosusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ma'm'selle Hepzibah. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cerebrosusian economy, worth 603 trillion yiffs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 181,075 yiffs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cerebrosus's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cerebrosus is ranked 37,069th in the world and 1,402nd in the West Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,715.81 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
