The Principality of Cerdia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Steve Edge with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 1.31 billion Cerds are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veligrad. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cerdian economy, worth 192 trillion Perpers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,226 Perpers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, government workers are more efficient and more unhappy than ever, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cerdia's national animal is the Sparrow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cerdia is ranked 68,281st in the world and 10th in The Greater Jakechat Containment Sphere for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 369.15 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
