The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.365 billion Lukes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ChainGang Central. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, anti-government web sites are springing up, and vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam. Crime is totally unknown. CoolHandLuke's national animal is the bender, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Boiled Egg.

CoolHandLuke is ranked 5th in USSR and 532nd in the world for Best Weather, with 622 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
