The Women can wear trousers too of Cousethii is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.297 billion Cousethii are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The very strong Cousethi economy, worth 373 trillion units a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 70,545 units, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 455,661 per year while the poor average 4,395, a ratio of 103 to 1.

A major religion has been named as Cousethii's national religion, Leader has just been declared ruler of Cousethii in an international press conference, military spending recently hit a new high, and politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cousethii's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cousethii is ranked 270,141st in the world and 6th in Lorania for Most Income Equality, scoring 0.96 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
