OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Union of Cooperia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.285 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 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. 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 5th in Soviet Russia and 54,982nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 64 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
