The Republic of Covidialia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.489 billion Covidialians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Covidialian economy, worth 396 trillion Bovids 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 159,294 Bovids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, children asked by parents to 'guess how much I love you' ask for the cash value, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Covidialia's national animal is the Covidialian LongHorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Covidialia is ranked 184,478th in the world and 331st in Conch Kingdom for Fattest Citizens, with 8.84 Obesity Rate.
