The Federation of Contracorriente is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Anderson Cooper with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.048 billion Anglo-Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Anglo-American economy, worth a remarkable 3,206 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 213,092 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and people boast about their low income on their dating profiles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Contracorriente's national animal is the Liagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Anglo-America.

Contracorriente is ranked 194,900th in the world and 86th in Enadia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.64 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
