OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Union of Cooperia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.793 billion Cooperians 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Public Transport are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cooper City. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and major internet servers have acquired citizenship. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Cooperia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Cooperism, and its currency is the Cooper.

Cooperia is ranked 1st in Soviet Russia and 13,954th in the world for Best Weather, with 65 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
