The Holy Filesharing Empire of Ceidtopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Timelad with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.485 billion Ceidtopians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bktirion. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ceidtopian economy, worth a remarkable 9,107 trillion glootias a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 492,713 glootias, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,057,745 per year while the poor average 34,154, a ratio of 89.5 to 1.

Economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Ceidtopia's radio stations, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen. Crime is totally unknown. Ceidtopia's national animal is the Feathered Ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of Violet.

Ceidtopia is ranked 17,755th in the world and 1,041st in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
