The Galactic Commonwealth of Cosumar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King James II with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.215 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare 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 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cosumarite economy, worth a remarkable 4,564 trillion Krøns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,491 Krøns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

King James II's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and Cosumarite companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation. 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 4,640th in the world and 13th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,655.38 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
