OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.547 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 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.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, ChainGang Central spends billions upgrading public transport, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The ChainGang Central Times is sold out. 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 37th in USSR and 32,574th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
