The Chiefdom of Copper Cuprum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chief Deg with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.299 billion Copperites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wa Deg. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Copperite economy, worth a remarkable 1,183 trillion copper coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,961 copper coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, and getting caught with the wrong recipe book can get you locked up for 100 - 500 megaseconds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Copper Cuprum's national animal is the hallucigenia, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Copper Cuprum is ranked 69,055th in the world and 30th in Esportiva for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,869.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
