The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Councilor Emily Sinclair with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 15.549 billion Commonwealthers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The relatively small, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Healthcare and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yelan City. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Commonwealth economy, worth a remarkable 2,121 trillion credits 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 136,442 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, students athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned eagleball fields, gambling addicts regularly lose their families' nest eggs at Native Commonwealth casinos, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kostemetsia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
