The United Socialist States of Cot Deviet is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 290 million Cot Devietians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rub' al. The average income tax rate is 44.4%.
The strong Cot Devietian economy, worth 23.8 trillion Vitaliks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 81,987 Vitaliks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cot Deviet's national animal is the Desert Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
