The Colony of Cordel One is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 415 million Cordelians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cordel. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Cordelian economy, worth 11.0 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 26,419 iwas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, separatists boast glistening offices on Cordel's Embassy Row, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cordel One's national animal is the salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cordel One is ranked 7,658th in the world and 1st in NationStates Leftist Alternative for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.67 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
