The 𝙽𝚎𝚝𝚠𝚘𝚛𝚔 of The Cosmic Mainframe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by 𝚁𝚘𝚘𝚝 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.069 billion 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛𝚜 are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝙽𝚘𝚋𝚎𝚝𝚞. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.2%.

The frighteningly efficient 𝙲𝚘𝚖𝚙𝚞𝚝𝚎𝚛𝚒𝚣𝚎𝚍 economy, worth 201 trillion 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚕𝚎s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,202 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚕𝚎s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 557,935 per year while the poor average 49,833, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Protecting the land is holey work, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cosmic Mainframe's national animal is the 𝙰𝙸, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Universal Equation.

The Cosmic Mainframe is ranked 203,186th in the world and 6,607th in the Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 0.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
