The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.372 billion, 5.081 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

Abortions are routinely performed in CoolHandLuke's hospitals, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and CoolHandLuke's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. 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 128th in USSR and 114,976th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -32 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

CoolHandLuke is currently researching a cure.
