OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.796 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 concentrates mainly on Commerce, although Law & Order and Healthcare 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 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, soldiers are slaughtered in their thousands due to lack of training, and the Great CSS Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place 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 835th in Balder and 21,595th in the world for Nudest, with 198 Cheeks per Square Mile.
