OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Union of Cooperia is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.186 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cooper City. The average income tax rate is 82%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem. Cooperia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Cooper.

Cooperia is ranked 92nd in Aura Hyperia and 86,525th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.105 Stalins.
