The Thinktank and Safehaven of Cogito0 is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mike the King's Wit with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, avant-garde cinema, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.968 billion Cogito0ians 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.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Cogito0ian economy, worth 129 trillion Nerdrens a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,576 Nerdrens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Cogito0's border, gossip magazines have pictures of Mike the King's Wit sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and arbitration is mightier than the sword. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cogito0's national animal is the Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cogito0 is ranked 183,429th in the world and 7,346th in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 44.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
