The Woot woot woot I feel free of Cerb is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cerberus T Dawg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.491 billion Cerbadeedoodahs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Dawg pound. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.7%.

The all-consuming Cerblicious economy, worth a remarkable 3,300 trillion smileys a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,073 smileys, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 580,385 per year while the poor average 31,965, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cerb's national animal is the fluffy little puppy, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 24th day Dawgist.

Cerb is ranked 175,796th in the world and 1,053rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 445.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
