The Commonwealth of Kostemetsia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by William McMahon with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.396 billion Kostemetsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal 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 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kostemetsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,933 trillion special drawing rights a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,485 special drawing rights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Imitation is the sincerest form of felony, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, and passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters. Crime is totally unknown. Kostemetsia's national animal is the toushaut, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kostemetsia is ranked 113,316th in the world and 2,472nd in Osiris for Most Influential, scoring 118 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
