The Island Republic of Cosie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Giulian with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.64 billion Cosians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reunion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,594 trillion cobs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 208,683 cobs, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', several inches are being added to first class seating, and research into 'designer babies' is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cosie's national animal is the iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Saint Benedict's Rule.

Cosie is ranked 55,507th in the world and 47th in The Western Isles for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.56 on the Rand Index.
