The Democratic States of Cordgaise is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 360 million Cordgaiseans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petine. The average income tax rate is 21.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cordgaisean economy, worth 16.8 trillion Yuangans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,719 Yuangans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, and parents are fined for sending their children to take out the trash after sunset. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cordgaise's national animal is the White Dove.

Cordgaise is ranked 100,132nd in the world and 277th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 38.97 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
