OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Unruly Confederation of CoolHandLuke is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luke the Champion with a fair hand, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.905 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.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 145th in USSR and 119,727th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -16 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
