The All-Consuming Hive Mind of Cosmovania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Master with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.718 billion 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 medium-sized, 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 12%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Cosmovania's nuclear reactors are held together with party string and Hubba Bubba, almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. 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 10th in Wysteria and 34th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
