The Allied States of Cielearda is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 280 million Cieleardans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cynesetle. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Cieleardan economy, worth 22.5 trillion Mancas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,241 Mancas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Cieleardan Space Agency, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cielearda's national animal is the Wheatear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cielearda is ranked 154,329th in the world and 4th in 1st Epitome United for Most Primitive, scoring -93.82 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
