The United Socialist Republic of Costas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Andrews with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.317 billion Costasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Hampton. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Costasian economy, worth 99.1 trillion Hatchets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 75,236 Hatchets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

All guns must be registered, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Costasian language, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costas's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Costas is ranked 27,104th in the world and 566th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.57 Years.
