The People's Republic of Costabuena is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 530 million Costabuenans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cjuda du Vivac. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Costabuenan economy, worth 33.7 trillion Costa dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. Average income is 63,563 Costa dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costabuena's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Costabuena is ranked 73,362nd in the world and 285th in The Leftist Assembly for Nudest, with 128.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
