The Purple House of Kostrauceri is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.415 billion Kostraucerians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brooklyn. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Kostraucerian economy, worth 68.9 trillion Ortanoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 48,695 Ortanoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kostrauceri's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kostrauceri is ranked 11,055th in the world and 269th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 82.96 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
