OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.772 billion CSSians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Commerce, although Law & Order and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CSS City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer Reais to support the Automobile Manufacturing industry, CSS's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the CSS Blood Tithe. 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 53rd in Balder and 1,154th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 17 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
