The Universal Empire of Greater Cosmicium is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kasren Vereyn with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.111 billion Greater Cosmicians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Epsilon Tauri. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Greater Cosmiciumian economy, worth 86.4 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. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,763 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. 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 Space Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
