The Republic of Coulington is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President William Henry with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.651 billion Coulians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harrisonburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Coulian economy, worth 227 trillion Coulings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 137,551 Coulings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 518,922 per year while the poor average 25,396, a ratio of 20.4 to 1.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Coulington, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and lavish state dinners in Harrisonburg are the state's leading budgetary expenditure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coulington's national animal is the Kingfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Rebirth.

Coulington is ranked 27,203rd in the world and 1,509th in Osiris for Longest Average Lifespans, with 69.93 Years.
