The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.752 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.

Teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and all recreational drugs are legal. 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 1,744th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 340 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
