The United Federal Republic of Cerespasia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charles M Henschelberg with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.293 billion Cerespasians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virton. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cerespasian economy, worth 425 trillion Cereskian Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 185,386 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A paperwork error has naval privateers being directed to attack land-locked nations, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, the children of Cerespasia are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cerespasia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cerespasia is ranked 33,222nd in the world and 525th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20,162.83 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
