Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Republic of Cocsoah is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Nathan Clarke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.074 billion Cocsoahians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seaford. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cocsoahian economy, worth 296 trillion Wookiahs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 58,370 Wookiahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the government seizes all major gold finds, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Cocsoah's national animal is the Cocsoan Black-Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cocsoah is ranked 29,564th in the world and 1,260th in Osiris for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 94.47 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
