The Empire of Coalora is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Coalora with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.064 billion Coalorans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coalora City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Coaloran economy, worth 556 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 269,604 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,024,802 per year while the poor average 49,181, a ratio of 20.8 to 1.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coalora's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Coalora is ranked 34,355th in the world and 133rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,286.03 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
