Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The First People's Empire of Cogoria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grigori Zhukov with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.721 billion Cogorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oktobergrad. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cogorian economy, worth 269 trillion Cogors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,187 Cogors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship, parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars, new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, and the number of judges has tripled in recent months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cogoria's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cogoria is ranked 25,886th in the world and 645th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 459.17350473988 Days.
