Culture & Customs

Cookesland is a very culturally diverse nation, who's culture is not generally known outside of it's borders. Cookesland has been influenced by people from the many countries that have immigrated there from the various parts of the wide world.

A very curious aspect of the nation that separates it from the rest of the English speaking world is the Cookeslandic custom to go by your middle name and simply use your first name as an initial. e.g. John Michael Smith becomes J. Michael Smith. This can be a source of annoyance to outsiders who have feel they have rather "embarrassing" middle names or. Cookeslanders are also fond of good food an cooking (no pun intended) is a popular hobby of many citizens.

When it comes to religion, the nation is quite diverse, Yestarianism is the largest denomination due to the fact it was founded in Cookesland. Most Cookeslanders are quite devout and regularly attend the service of their faith. Universal toleration is an official government policy as well as a separtion of church and state.

Religion Percent of the Population
Yestarianism 59.8%
Roman Catholicism 20.6%
Shinto 19.1%
Other 0.05%

On National Holidays businesses, schools, courts, and mail are given the day off in honor of the celebration. January First is the national holiday and is celebrated with fireworks and parades in honor of the founding of Cookesland.


The National Sport is Baseball and most towns do have a team, but Soccer is quickly becoming quite popular due in part to Cookesland's entry into the World Cup. The Cookeslandic National Team (formerly the Blue Owls) is currently searching for a new name that would help the team name show more of a national identity.
