The Paradise of Coule Presko is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 548 million Coule Preskoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coulenia. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Coule Preskoan economy, worth 56.2 trillion jenrins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,473 jenrins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gangs of political bullies tell minority voices to "shut up because we say so", paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown. Coule Presko's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Coule Presko is ranked 21,565th in the world and 624th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,832.66 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
