The Universal Empire of Greater Cosmicium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor of Cosmicium with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 11.377 billion Greater Cosmicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epsilon Tauri. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Greater Cosmician economy, worth 338 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,784 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, the government is allowing greater autonomy for some regions in the hopes of quelling growing secessionist movements, and Greater Cosmicium's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Cosmicium's national animal is the Cosmic Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Cosmicium is ranked 156,697th in the world and 2nd in Universe of Cosmicium for Most Politically Free, scoring 56 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
