The Island Republic of Cosie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Giulian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and feral children. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.515 billion Cosians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reunion. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,057 trillion cobs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 216,273 cobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, women tell their friends they've been on crash diets rather than admit they were pregnant and have had terminations, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cosie's national animal is the iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saint Benedict's Rule.

Cosie is ranked 93,543rd in the world and 97th in The Western Isles for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,635.51 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
