Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.671 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, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ChainGang Central. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Luke economy, worth a remarkable 1,726 trillion Boiled Eggs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 199,061 Boiled Eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International tensions are high as CoolHandLuke threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CoolHandLuke's national animal is the bender, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

CoolHandLuke is ranked 120th in USSR and 140,456th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -80 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
