The Republic of Cotdelapoms is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jarvis Coquerique with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.49 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albionpool. The average income tax rate is 73%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cotdelapoms's national animal is the Ours Polaire, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.

Cotdelapoms is ranked 7th in Rushmore and 3,338th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 32 Whatever.
