The Corporate States of Cossmania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Board President Robert Morton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.077 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cossmanian economy, worth a remarkable 7,029 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 388,872 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,634,759 per year while the poor average 3,594, a ratio of 1,011 to 1.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, Cossmania is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". 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 205,895th in the world and 102nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Primitive, scoring -689.02 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
