The Mainland Municipalities of Cottony is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mayor Yoshiko McAdams with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.68 billion Dirlanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuńňvillen. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dirlandic economy, worth 410 trillion kro¨ns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,682 kro¨ns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Interest in globalism never flags, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cottony's national animal is the Dirlandic sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cottony is ranked 34,535th in the world and 23rd in Nordic Lands for Highest Economic Output, with 410 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
