The Principality of CostaLisa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.417 billion CostaLisans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capyborough. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving CostaLisan economy, worth 248 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,678 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, and urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. CostaLisa's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

CostaLisa is ranked 235,793rd in the world and 11,536th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -25.03 on the Hayek Index.
