The Borderlands of Cotreobia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stress Cracker III with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.786 billion Cotreobians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VelÝze. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Cotreobian economy, worth 212 trillion Screams a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,203 Screams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's always rabbit season, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Cotreobia's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cotreobia's national animal is the Crippling Fear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anxietism.

Cotreobia is ranked 195,068th in the world and 402nd in The Free Nations Region for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -41.02 on the Hayek Index.
