The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.776 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.

All recreational drugs are legal, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 1,756th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 340 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
