The All-Consuming Hive Mind of Cosmovania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Master with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.602 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business morass -- concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valley Lodge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Cosmovania's national animal is the torgo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Manos, and its currency is the orphan.

Cosmovania is ranked 9th in Wysteria and 19th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 42 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
