Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Cosumar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King James II with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.292 billion Cosumarites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramusok. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cosumarite economy, worth a remarkable 3,170 trillion Chrons a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 207,320 Chrons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of King James II performing the Full-Monty are selling out, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and King James II can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids. Crime is totally unknown. Cosumar's national animal is the Azure Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cosumar is ranked 133,040th in the world and 67th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
