OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Union of Cooperia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 2.753 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 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 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. Cooperia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Cooper.

Cooperia is ranked 1st in Soviet Russia and 7,139th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 32 on the Enoch Index.
