The Protectorate of Kostona is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 1.791 billion Kostonans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Kostonan economy, worth 75.2 trillion dollars 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 led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 41,981 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, Harry Potter books are banned, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kostona's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Kostona is ranked 74,466th in the world and 4th in Auctoritan Commonwealth for Most Extreme, scoring 22.83 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
