The American Commonwealth of Cerma is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alan Callahan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.244 billion Cermen 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Top Hill. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cerman economy, worth a remarkable 4,973 trillion Letters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 349,166 Letters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, people who have lived their entire lives in Cerma are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, and kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cerma's national animal is the American Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cerma is ranked 8,607th in the world and 6th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 6,180.58 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
