The The Kingdom of Cothern is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Meyer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.97 billion Cothernites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munich. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Corthernite economy, worth 242 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,877 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The police double as repo men, the military has declared that 'a woman's place is in the mess hall', citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cothern's national animal is the Golden Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Cothern is ranked 109,915th in the world and 1st in Obamaville for Largest Populations, with 1.97 billion Capita.
