The Governor of Codrington is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 22.974 billion Codringtonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Codrington. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Codringtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,148 trillion east carribean dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. 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 49,982 east carribean dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, and behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Codrington's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Codrington is ranked 164,514th in the world and 15th in Caribbean for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 22.28 on the Hayek Index.
