The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by William McMahon with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 18.741 billion Kostemetsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indeterminate Urban Morass. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kostemetsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,016 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 160,979 special drawing rights, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, and political detractors refer to William McMahon as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime is totally unknown. Kostemetsia's national animal is the toushaut, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kostemetsia is ranked 4,687th in the world and 220th in Osiris for Most Pacifist, with 152.73 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
