The United Socialist States of CES is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 555 million CESians 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.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.1%.

The CESian economy, worth 23.6 trillion iPhones a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 42,451 iPhones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CES's national animal is the Samsungian Tiger.

CES is ranked 94,058th in the world and 3rd in United Alliances for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 57.25 on the Hayek Index.
