The Blessed Crown of Cernomia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Black Queen Kallisti with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 18.178 billion Cernomites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dixie. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Cernomite economy, worth a remarkable 5,054 trillion molas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 278,053 molas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cernomia isn't what it used to be, homophobia is off the menu, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, and Cernomia is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cernomia's national animal is the sunfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Discordianism.

Cernomia is ranked 239,589th in the world and 201st in Yggdrasil for Rudest Citizens, with 6.64 Insults Per Minute.
