The Neglected alt of Cordel Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Politburo One with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 2.273 billion Cordelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyprus. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cordel Islandian economy, worth 267 trillion iwas 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,542 iwas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, gambling is outlawed, Politburo One has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and Cordelians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cordel Island's national animal is the firefly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cordel Island is ranked 163,280th in the world and 6th in The Allied Communes of The Black Savanna for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
