The Ukraine Supporters of The Cordian Isles is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.069 billion Cordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cordasfjord. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cordian Islesian economy, worth 185 trillion cordans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,862 cordans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process, and beggars lack pockets for spare change. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cordian Isles's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Cordian Isles is ranked 39,748th in the world and 29th in Atlantian Oceania for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,451.97 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
