The Grand Duchy of Cosszka is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.412 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Uranium Mining.
Eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and loans are available for students from poor families. 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.
