The Divine Bakery of Cookiesia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Christie with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.774 billion Cookiesians 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 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 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cookiesian economy, worth 286 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 common. Average income is an impressive 103,388 Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, government officials across Cookiesia are being "encouraged" to adopt Cookie Monsters to set an example for the populace, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. 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 92,490th in the world and 4,635th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 178.05 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
