The Island Republic of Cosie is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Giulian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.653 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 government prioritizes Environment, with Industry, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reunion. The average income tax rate is 23.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cosian economy, worth 742 trillion cobs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 159,578 cobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Giulian's credibility no favours, and Giulian has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 170,135th in the world and 246th in The Western Isles for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -32.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
