The Kingdom Republic of Ceretis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Harry Callahan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.182 billion Ceretians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.

The powerhouse Ceretisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,549 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 189,366 Orichalcums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 780,408 per year while the poor average 30,252, a ratio of 25.8 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 21,595th in the world and 1,053rd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 75.76 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
