The Universal Empire of Greater Cosmicium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kasren Vereyn with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 4.287 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 37.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Greater Cosmician economy, worth 128 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 29,985 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Greater Cosmicium's radio stations, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, religious education is a new government priority, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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 196,635th in the world and 4th in Universe of Cosmicium for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 692.83 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
