The Colony of Cetacea is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.856 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, 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 950 trillion keekekkekkktetttekkkekees a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 47,869 keekekkekkktetttekkkekees, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 186,462 per year while the poor average 8,395, a ratio of 22.2 to 1.

The Cetacea Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, traffic news is delivered to drivers via carrier pigeon, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime is a problem. Cetacea's national animal is the krill, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cetacea is ranked 15,469th in the world and 415th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,153.23 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
