The Colony of Cetacea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.541 billion Cetaceans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The powerhouse Cetacean economy, worth 599 trillion keekekkekkktetttekkkekees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 44,272 keekekkekkktetttekkkekees, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 183,963 per year while the poor average 6,974, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Cetacea, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. Crime is a problem. Cetacea's national animal is the krill, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cetacea is ranked 54,258th in the world and 1,833rd in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,950.74 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
