The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by First Councilor Emily Sinclair with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.851 billion, 4.845 billion of whom are zombies, Kostemetsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Healthcare and Public Transport are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yelan City. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Kostemetsia's border, prison visits increase substantially during election years, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Kostemetsia's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the credit.

Kostemetsia is ranked 3,547th in Lazarus and 113,197th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Kostemetsia is currently considering its options.

People: 5,967,181

Zombies: 4,845,323,672

Dead: 9,940,258,625

Survival Rate: 0.04%
