The Federal Islamic Republic of Cereskia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Ahmad Mulyadi with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ritual sacrifices, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, devout population of 956 million Cereskians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrea. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cereskian economy, worth 123 trillion Cereskian Pounds 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 impressive 129,649 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

There's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cereskia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cereskia is ranked 213,717th in the world and 9,892nd in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 6.66 Atheism Rate.
