Cooptopolis

The Holy Empire of Cooptopolis is a tiny, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 18 million Cooponians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Cooponian economy, worth 483 billion Cooponian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 26,846 Cooponian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The might of the nation's military are undertaking a long march to colonisation in Brasilistan, "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cooptopolis's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cooptopolis is ranked 51,740th in the world and 21st in Entropy for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,070.49 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
