OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Cosszka is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.704 billion Cosszkayans 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cosszka City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Loans are available for students from poor families, copyright laws have been abolished, Cosszka has designated Cosszka City as its capital city, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cosszka's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Cszeszianitija, and its currency is the Cszesk.

Cosszka is ranked 10th in Nocturnalya and 35,261st in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 23 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
