OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.47 billion 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 Religion & Spirituality 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 57%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Burglary is widely regarded as the national sport, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 1st in Warzone AOAN and 197th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 213 Whatever.
