The Gone of Cereskia 2 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Drake Camper with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.656 billion Cereskians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Astrana. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cereskian economy, worth 547 trillion Cereskian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 205,977 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Cereskian grocery store, criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character, and baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cereskia 2's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stickminian Violetism.

Cereskia 2 is ranked 12,034th in the world and 340th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 85.52 Effective Tax Rate.
