The United Socialist States of Cojalaco is a massive, devout nation, ruled by The Connor with an iron fist, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.775 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cojalaco City. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Protectordogs' dominate wildlife preserves, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, people take government jobs for the frequent flier miles, and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cojalaco's national animal is the Protector, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Protection, and its currency is the CJ.

Cojalaco is ranked 3,404th in Lazarus and 111,843rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
