The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.256 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.

Politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities. 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 119th in USSR and 111,538th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -157.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
