The Holy Violet Gladiators of Cero Miedo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ophelia with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.153 billion Cero Miedoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dusk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The very strong Cero Miedoan economy, worth 199 trillion morales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Gambling, Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 92,608 morales, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, a government program is underway to revitalize Cero Miedo's beaches, saying "don't do anything that Ophelia wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cero Miedo's national animal is the werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cero Miedo is ranked 134,650th in the world and 25th in Pony Lands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -47.89 on the Rand Index.
