The Republic of New Cosmodrome is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dante Greene with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.828 billion New Cosmodromes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Cosmodromean economy, worth 285 trillion Yettens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,474 Yettens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Cosmodrome's national animal is the Leopard Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Cosmodrome is ranked 162,768th in the world and 5,783rd in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
