OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Union of Cooperia is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.16 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 is mainly concerned with 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 80%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, and the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious 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 2nd in Soviet Russia and 26,216th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 25 Dawkins.
