The Island Republic of Cosie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Giulian with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.838 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 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,900 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 215,067 cobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hospitals have poor data security but send lots of bodies to be encrypted, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. 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 41,612th in the world and 73rd in The Western Isles for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 3.73 Bank.
