The Democratic Republic of Kostbone is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 715 million Kostboneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kostbonean economy, worth 46.3 trillion kosts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,819 kosts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are hated by children across the country, alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kostbone's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kostbone is ranked 32,336th in the world and 1,457th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,678.44 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
