The United States of Cosniloca is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 877 million Cosnilocans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Cosnilocan economy, worth 36.8 trillion Cosnilocan Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,910 Cosnilocan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Cosniloca's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cosniloca's national animal is the Blue Jay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
