The Republic of New Cosmodrome is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dante Greene with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.036 billion New Cosmodromes 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Cosmodromean economy, worth 297 trillion Yettens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,749 Yettens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All weapon research has been banned, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Cosmodrome's national animal is the Leopard Gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Cosmodrome is ranked 198,194th in the world and 7,269th in Osiris for Fattest Citizens, with 5.86 Obesity Rate.
