The Divine Bakery of Cookiesia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mister Christie with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.732 billion Cookiesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gingersnaps. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cookiesian economy, worth 168 trillion Chips a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,469 Chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, Gingersnaps is a police state during international summits, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cookiesia's national animal is the Cookie Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cookiesia is ranked 16,022nd in the world and 844th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 114.08 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
