The ENDORSE TSUNAMY of Copercia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its closed borders, rampant corporate plagiarism, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.802 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 96.3%.

The sizeable but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Coperciums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 6,670 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign militaries are taking a particular interest in the nation's abandoned borders and cities, the nation is in perpetual campaign mode, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. 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 153,162nd in the world and 6,320th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -51.96 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
