The All-Consuming Hive Mind of Cosmovania is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by The Master with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.286 billion Cosmovanians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valley Lodge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, new urban roads are threatening city parks, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Cosmovania's national animal is the torgo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Manos, and its currency is the orphan.

Cosmovania is ranked 168th in Wysteria and 112,120th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1,003 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
