The Soviet Republic of Cordonshur is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gennadi Silayev with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 7.138 billion Cordonshurians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vekarinberg. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cordonshurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 147,647 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cordonshur's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cordonshur is ranked 228,996th in the world and 12th in The Confederation of Nations for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
