Cortlandt Manor

Population12.873 billion

LeaderPresident Boxer


The Democratic Republic of Cortlandt Manor is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Boxer with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.873 billion Cortlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westchester. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The all-consuming Cortlandt Manorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 trillion Spennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 115,910 Spennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cortlandt Manor's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism.

Cortlandt Manor is ranked 211,456th in the world and 635th in Europeia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.16 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
