The Democratic Republic of Cortlandt Manor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Boxer with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.666 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westchester. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.
The all-consuming Cortlandt Manorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,863 trillion Spennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 118,946 Spennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, and bris parties are all the rage. 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.
