The Queendom of Coluperinkera is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.905 billion Coluperinkerans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Insancity. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Coluperinkeran economy, worth 182 trillion moolamunnies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,021 moolamunnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, escalators are avoided at all costs, glamping Coluperinkerans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coluperinkera's national animal is the Burrowing Owlbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Coluperinkera is ranked 243,818th in the world and 4,421st in the Rejected Realms for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.37 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
