OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.59 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 secondary priorities. 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 booming slave trade is now government-funded, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, it is widely believed that the first citizen of CSS was called 'Wild-eyed Daddy-O', and notable individuals are granted land and titles. 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 2,621st in Balder and 89,100th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
