The Eternal Misfortune of Copercia is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of public education, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.516 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 96.8%.

The sizeable but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 59.5 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 6,986 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, the term "Native Copercian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and many say faith is a crutch for those who can't move forward. 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 168,263rd in the world and 7,283rd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -50.5 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
