The Republic of CSS is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.28 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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. The average income tax rate is 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, pollsters are out of a job as elections have been cancelled, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, and citizens must pay to enjoy CSS's pristine beaches. 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 8th in Warzone AOAN and 111,349th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -92 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
