The Kingdom Republic of Ceretis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Harry Callahan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.064 billion Ceretians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The powerhouse Ceretisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,688 trillion Orichalcums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,283 Orichalcums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 737,419 per year while the poor average 31,819, a ratio of 23.2 to 1.

They say that Harry Callahan's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Glaucus Atlanticuses and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime is well under control. Ceretis's national animal is the Glaucus Atlanticus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ceretis is ranked 138,274th in the world and 6,957th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 29.41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
