The Council of Cessarea is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Expedient Denial VII with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.846 billion Cessareans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cessarean economy, worth 120 trillion labores a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 65,418 labores, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cessarea's national animal is the Builder-pidgeon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cessarea is ranked 19,781st in the world and 4th in New World Union for Best Weather, with 166 meters of sunlight.
