The Free Land of Coemgen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by First Citizen Kevin with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.787 billion Coemgenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leadora Glen. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Coemgenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,243 trillion Kilogram Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 190,354 Kilogram Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Coemgen's national animal is the Sarcastic Fringehead, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anglo-Lutheran Orthodox Universalism.

Coemgen is ranked 3,063rd in the world and 154th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 600.33 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
