OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.925 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 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 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.

Dark alleys and public toilets are filled with furtive sexual activities among teenagers and unmarried adults, the poor are quarantined in the inner cities to prevent criminals from entering the suburbs, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and over-inflated fears of a "Y1" bug have turned humble IT workers into millionaires (CSS has found 4 easter eggs). 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 24th in Balder and 630th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 16 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
