The 𝙽𝚎𝚝𝚠𝚘𝚛𝚔 of The Cosmic Mainframe is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by 𝚁𝚘𝚘𝚝 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.376 billion 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛𝚜 are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝙽𝚘𝚋𝚎𝚝𝚞. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient 𝙲𝚘𝚖𝚙𝚞𝚝𝚎𝚛𝚒𝚣𝚎𝚍 economy, worth 281 trillion 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚕𝚎s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 204,884 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜𝚘𝚛 𝙲𝚢𝚌𝚕𝚎s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 639,508 per year while the poor average 50,400, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, and colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cosmic Mainframe's national animal is the 𝙰𝙸, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Universal Equation.

The Cosmic Mainframe is ranked 51,804th in the world and 975th in the Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 446 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
