The Nihilistic Theocracy of Cosmic Unity Church is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Priest Von Neumann with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, prohibition of alcohol, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.688 billion Cosmicolics are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Education and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eden City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.5%.
The thriving Cosmitolic economy, worth 180 trillion Aurums a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 106,809 Aurums, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 756,945 per year while the poor average 5,030, a ratio of 150 to 1.
Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice, fathers are free to sell their daughters to whomever they choose, and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Cosmic Unity Church's national animal is the Sea Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Animistic Nihilism.
