Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by First Councilor Emily Sinclair with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 15.271 billion Kostemetsians 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yelan City. The average income tax rate is 4.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kostemetsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,092 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 136,992 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kostemetsia's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kostemetsia is ranked 71st in The North Pacific and 2,391st in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 17 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
