The Protectorate of Kossovir is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 326 million Kossovirians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kossovirian economy, worth 35.0 trillion Telms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 107,487 Telms, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 503,303 per year while the poor average 13,703, a ratio of 36.7 to 1.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, after every storm there's an expensive government-funded rainbow, and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kossovir's national animal is the Black Dragons, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kossovir is ranked 4,868th in the world and 4th in Equilism for Fattest Citizens, with 23.39 Obesity Rate.
