The Democratic Republic of Cortlandt Manor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Boxer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.065 billion Cortlandians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westchester. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.
The powerhouse Cortlandt Manorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,273 trillion Spennies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 115,062 Spennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and there have been reports of people marrying housepets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cortlandt Manor's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism.
