The Corporate States of Cossmania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Board President Robert Morton with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.769 billion Cossmanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cossmanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,484 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 411,244 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,018,014 per year while the poor average 47,967, a ratio of 42.1 to 1.

Drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, Cossmanian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cossmania's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hero Worship.

Cossmania is ranked 731st in the world and 12th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Black Market, with 1,828 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
