OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.407 billion CSSians 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 Commerce, although Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CSS City. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and the government spends millions of Reais every year prosecuting spammers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. CSS's national animal is the Box Model, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Real.

CSS is ranked 2nd in Warzone AOAN and 21,800th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 10 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
