The Provisional Dictatorship of Costa Hermosa is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by El Presidente with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 794 million Costa Hermosans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mérida. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Costa Hermosan economy, worth 102 trillion Libras a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,137 Libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime is totally unknown. Costa Hermosa's national animal is the Yucatan brown brocket, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Costa Hermosa is ranked 152,865th in the world and 3rd in Demos for Most Influential, scoring 4 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
