The People's Republic of Costabuena is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 333 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, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cjuda du Vivac. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Costabuenan economy, worth 20.6 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, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 61,729 Costa dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", people have become comfortably numb, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. 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 151,178th in the world and 337th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.18 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
