The Stratocratic Commonwealth of Costelberg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Generals with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.016 billion Costelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nollmeria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Costelian economy, worth 132 trillion Tico Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,262 Tico Notes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 902,125 per year while the poor average 6,610, a ratio of 136 to 1.
Women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costelberg's national animal is the Songbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
