The Banana Republic of Costa Hermosa is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by El Presidente with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.151 billion Costa Hermosans 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 large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Libertador. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Costa Hermosan economy, worth a remarkable 1,337 trillion Ameroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,084 Ameroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"El Presidente got your tongue?" has become a popular idiom, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costa Hermosa's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Costa Hermosa is ranked 272,806th in the world and 6,673rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.13 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
