The Kingdom of Cooperia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Cooper x with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.618 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.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Defense, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cooper City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Cooperian economy, worth 866 trillion Coopers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 154,176 Coopers, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.
Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Cooper City as a backdrop, nude art is becoming wildly popular, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime is totally unknown. Cooperia's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cooperism.
