OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.423 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.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, strategic bombers are being converted into preschools, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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 693rd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 310 Dawkins.
