The Queendom of Cogma is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 9.863 billion Cogmen 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Cogman economy, worth 39.8 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 4,037 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nudity is frowned upon, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, elections have been outlawed, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cogma's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cogma is ranked 185,599th in the world and 7th in Utah for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14.9 on the Hayek Index.
