The United Socialist States of CES is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.996 billion 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 42.0%.

The CESian economy, worth 121 trillion iPhones a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 40,587 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 120,980th in the world and 2nd in United Alliances for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 885.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
