The Kingdom Republic of Ceretis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harry Callahan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.627 billion Ceretians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The powerhouse Ceretisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,041 trillion Orichalcums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 185,152 Orichalcums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 870,261 per year while the poor average 23,438, a ratio of 37.1 to 1.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Orichalcums of property damage, and the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Glaucus Atlanticus hunting institutions. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 2,535th in the world and 91st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 221.83 on the Hayek Index.
