The All-Consuming Hive Mind of Cosmovania is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by The Master with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.52 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valley Lodge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 10th in Wysteria and 46th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 1,547.9 Insults Per Minute (net).
