The Cethicalistic Order

Population5.228 billion

LeaderJayden Bowers


The Empire of The Cethicalistic Order is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jayden Bowers with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.228 billion Ablinians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jonderbina. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ablin economy, worth 619 trillion Pounds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 118,441 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Ablinians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Jayden Bowers, Jayden Bowers's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Jonderbina generates millions of views, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cethicalistic Order's national animal is the Cyclops, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cethism.

The Cethicalistic Order is ranked 127,268th in the world and 4,788th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.35 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
