The Federal Republic of Cord Isla is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Andrew Thompson with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.4 billion Cord Islans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cordiville. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cord Islan economy, worth 354 trillion guilders 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 104,393 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Cord Isla after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cord Isla's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cord Isla is ranked 260,540th in the world and 102nd in The Social Liberal Union for Most Authoritarian, with 240.91 milliStalins.
