OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.633 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 Public Transport 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 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, soldiers have swapped their uniforms for prisonwear, the nation's cuisine is the laughing stock of Balder, and citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys. 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 11th in Balder and 368th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 17 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
