The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.572 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 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.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, all industry is owned and run by the government, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. 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 36th in USSR and 36,477th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
