OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Union of Cooperia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.207 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 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 82%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Coopers each year, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as Cooperia's House of Parliament, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. 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 119th in Aura Hyperia and 112,166th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
