The Community of Cenotaph is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.708 billion Cenotaphians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cenodelphia. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cenotaphian economy, worth a remarkable 2,915 trillion C-Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 164,657 C-Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cenotaph's national animal is the hermit crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cenotaph is ranked 257,846th in the world and 876th in NationStates for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -39.27 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
