The 𝙽𝚎𝚝𝚠𝚘𝚛𝚔 of The Cosmic Mainframe is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by 𝚁𝚘𝚘𝚝 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, anti-smoking policies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.969 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝙽𝚘𝚋𝚎𝚝𝚞. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient 𝙲𝚘𝚖𝚙𝚞𝚝𝚎𝚛𝚒𝚣𝚎𝚍 economy, worth 721 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 242,941 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚕𝚎s, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is 𝚄𝚗𝚒𝚟𝚎𝚛𝚜𝚊𝚕 𝙴𝚚𝚞𝚊𝚝𝚒𝚘𝚗.

The Cosmic Mainframe is ranked 232,428th in the world and 6,074th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
