The Galactic Commonwealth of Cosumar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King James II with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 24.25 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ramusok. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cosumarite economy, worth a remarkable 5,073 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 209,199 Krøns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, Cosumarite novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about King James II, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. 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 2,475th in the world and 2nd in Anaia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,124.99 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
