The Island Republic of Cosie is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Giulian with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.851 billion Cosians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reunion. The average income tax rate is 37.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,912 trillion cobs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 216,043 cobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, women tell their friends they've been on crash diets rather than admit they were pregnant and have had terminations, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cosie's national animal is the iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saint Benedict's Rule.

Cosie is ranked 3,505th in the world and 10th in The Western Isles for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 135,026.94 Standard Monetary Units.
