The American Commonwealth of Cerma is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Alan Callahan with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.81 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, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cerman economy, worth a remarkable 4,824 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 349,312 Letters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The people's love for Alan Callahan is little more than self-preservation, military training in Cerma emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and bad decisions are made very quickly. 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 2,150th in the world and 2nd in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 17,024.95 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
