The First People's Empire of Cogoria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grigori Zhukov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.334 billion Cogorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized 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 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Cogorian economy, worth 261 trillion Cogors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 112,097 Cogors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and the deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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.
