Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Council of State with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 16.38 billion Kostemetsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central. The average income tax rate is 23.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kostemetsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,364 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,323 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, large areas of Kostemetsia are not accessible by the public, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kostemetsia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kostemetsia is ranked 147th in The Local Cluster and 140,407th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -310 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
