The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.157 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, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ChainGang Central. The income tax rate is 100%.

The powerhouse Luke economy, worth a remarkable 1,547 trillion Boiled Eggs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 189,762 Boiled Eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals, organ donation is compulsory, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CoolHandLuke's national animal is the bender, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

CoolHandLuke is ranked 131st in USSR and 115,361st in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
