The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6.535 billion 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.

The government is avowedly atheist, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. 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 163rd in USSR and 122,600th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -3,430 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
