The People's Confederation of Cosrikia commonly called Cosrikia or Kosrikia, is a Liberal Socialist Federation in the south-eastern Communist Bloc. It is bordered on the north by Ubertas, by the east by Estasias and on the west by Macizlen. Cosrikia covers 946,321 square kilometers (on earth) and has has an estimated population of 1713 million, most of it in Cosrikia's Interplanetary Territories. Cosrikia comprises of 412 Electorates and 3 Planetary Territories.
The first Humans arrived in the Cosriik plateau in 952, when Vikings from Crux Borealis started settling the Area. The Area was late taken by Vatikanistan after their holy war on nordic pagans in 1547. The People's Confederation of Cosrikia was established in 1896, after a bloody war of independence with Vatikanistan, following high taxation and little representation of the region. In 1917 the first Nation to officially recognise Cosrikia was the Soviet union following the October Revolution. Today, they are the only nation in the Communist Bloc that claims 2 entire planets.
Cosrikia's high national GDP along with it's high income equality and social welfare make it one of the most developed nations on Earth. The economy is fueled by the information technology and interplanetary trade industries. Having declared itself a Green State, Cosrikia does not have any mining, oil drilling or foresting industries. Cosrikia is very non-militaristic, having no standing Army. They have provided large amounts of Foreign Aid in the past, for example to Oskshadistan.
The name Cosrikia comes from a powerful viking family that controlled much of modern Cosrikia, the Kosriiki. The Name is believed to mean as much as "Holy Warriors" or "Soldiers of the Gods". The origins of this name have sparked controversy in recent years, due to it's meaning being contradictory to the nation's largely atheist and pacifist policies.
The standard way to refer to a citizen of Cosrikia is as a "Cosriik."
According to old viking Sagas, the first to settle in Cosrikia were the Family of Tobjas Kosriik, who, after he was banished from Crux Borealis for manslaughter and high treason, needed new land to claim for his family.
