The Federal Republic of Costelloland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Head Poobah with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.062 billion Costellolandians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Costellolandvilletontown. The average income tax rate is 56.4%.

The all-consuming Costellolandian economy, worth 194 trillion dumaflodges a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,270 dumaflodges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costelloland's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Costelloland is ranked 120,371st in the world and 3,167th in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 878.45 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
