The Eternal Misfortune of Copercia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.08 billion Copercians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The sizeable but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 66.3 trillion Coperciums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 7,298 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, people spend a lot on hair and nails, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and warning signs caution Copercians where they may fall off 'the edge of the world'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Copercia's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a major religion.

Copercia is ranked 170,779th in the world and 7,624th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -64.39 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
