The Bourgeois Liberals of Collatis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ed Miliband with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.873 billion Collasians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Collatia. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Collasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,623 trillion counoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,389 counoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the government seizes all major gold finds, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown. Collatis's national animal is the wolf in mouse clothing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Collatis is ranked 57,043rd in the world and 8th in Zentari for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,955.88 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
