The Federal Islamic Republic of Cereskia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Taliq Agung with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.416 billion Cereskians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrana. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cereskian economy, worth 452 trillion Cereskian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 187,215 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, the only place where one can see the Cereskian cherry tree is in a museum, people are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support Taliq Agung, and immigrants flood the job queues as discrimination in the workplace makes a staggering comeback. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cereskia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Shia Islam.

Cereskia is ranked 177,351st in the world and 7,202nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.11 Obesity Rate.
