The Bourgeois Liberals of Collatis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ed Miliband with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.699 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 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Collasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,266 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 164,510 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 116,689th in the world and 89th in Social Liberal Union for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 269.57 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
