The Bourgeois Liberals of Collatis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ed Miliband with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.559 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 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Collasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,429 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 167,059 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 1,222nd in the world and 2nd in Zentari for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,301.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
