OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of CSS is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its suspicion of poets. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.519 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 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 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the government is rounding up computers and beating them into plowshares, and CSS's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio. 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 6,831st in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 110 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
