The Blessed Crown of Cernomia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Black Queen Kallisti with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 20.49 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 5,735 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 279,902 molas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the digital money revolution has cashed out, goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. 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 914th in the world and 3rd in Yggdrasil for Most Patriotic, with 92.43 flags saluted per person per day.
