The United Socialist States of Coopitania is a small, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 20 million Coopitanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The fragile Coopitanian economy, worth 521 billion Bitcoins 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. Average income is 26,079 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coopitania's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
