The Ultra-religious kratocracy of Cosmic Unity Church is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, fear of technology, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 710 million Cosmicolics are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Education and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eden City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.3%.

The thriving Cosmitolic economy, worth 76.7 trillion Rapture credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 108,029 Rapture credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 755,981 per year while the poor average 5,302, a ratio of 142 to 1.

A serf by any other name works just as hard, the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, all marriages are arranged by the government, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Cosmic Unity Church's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cosmic Unity Church is ranked 211,493rd in the world and 24th in Regionless for Best Weather, with 17 Meters Of Sunlight.
