The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.671 billion Kostemetsians 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 prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kostemetsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,284 trillion special drawing rights a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 166,969 special drawing rights, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and nine out of ten citizens of Kostemetsia answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime is totally unknown. Kostemetsia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kostemetsia is ranked 5,214th in the world and 253rd in Osiris for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,531.27 tourists per hour.
