The Empire of CFS Nation is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 956 million CFS Nationians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant CFS Nationian economy, worth 12.1 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 12,663 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, throwing a sickie is a serious crime, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CFS Nation's national animal is the Baboon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

CFS Nation is ranked 147,576th in the world and 5,572nd in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -13.3 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
