The Federal Republic of Costelloland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Head Poobah with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.592 billion Costellolandians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Costellolandvilletontown. The average income tax rate is 52.9%.

The all-consuming Costellolandian economy, worth 142 trillion dumaflodges a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,320 dumaflodges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, bris parties are all the rage, most barbers are also surgeons, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costelloland's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Costelloland is ranked 237,117th in the world and 8,356th in the West Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.1 crimes per hour.
