The Federal Republic of Countesia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by James Emmanuel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.118 billion Countesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbem City. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Countesian economy, worth 358 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 114,837 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, the bum of James Emmanuel has been voted the most recognisable in Countesia, polite commuters on the Urbem City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, and nations that kill a Countesian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime is totally unknown. Countesia's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Countesia is ranked 20,821st in the world and 328th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 82.28 on the Human Development Index.
