The Queendom of Cecilly is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Silversteel Valkyrie Cecilly with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.578 billion Cecilites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silversteel Citadel. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cecilian economy, worth a remarkable 4,351 trillion Drachamas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 298,463 Drachamas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cecilian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. Crime is totally unknown. Cecilly's national animal is the Lunar Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Will of the Self.

Cecilly is ranked 4,778th in the world and 52nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Influential, scoring 15,365 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
