The Republic of Cenabum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its lack of airports, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.431 billion Carnutes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cenabum. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Carnutian economy, worth a remarkable 5,518 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 283,979 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate. Crime is totally unknown. Cenabum's national animal is the Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cenabum is ranked 9,796th in the world and 7th in European Union for Nudest, with 220.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
