The Democratic Republic of Kostbone is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 740 million Kostboneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Kostbonean economy, worth 46.1 trillion kosts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,259 kosts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kostbone's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
