The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.045 billion Lukes enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy. 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 8th in USSR and 800th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 162 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
