The Kingdom of Cessnia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Gregory Karlsson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.143 billion Cessnians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eroston. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cessnian economy, worth 149 trillion Labor Credits 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, 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 an impressive 131,135 Labor Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cessnia's national animal is the Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cessnia is ranked 13,009th in the world and 39th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.41 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
