The Federal Republic of Countesia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Emmanuel with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.803 billion Countesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbem City. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Countesian economy, worth 687 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 118,438 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hundreds of sailors ride the good ship James Emmanuel day after day, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. Crime is totally unknown. Countesia's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Countesia is ranked 18,444th in the world and 284th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,358.47 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
