The Eternal Misfortune of Copercia is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, prohibition of alcohol, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.16 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 96.7%.

The sizeable but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 55.8 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 6,838 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. 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 164,423rd in the world and 6,799th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 5.97 Whatever.
