The Queen's State Holy Blue of Couvee is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.063 billion Couveeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Couveean economy, worth 113 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 12,518 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Couvee's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Couvee is ranked 10,164th in the world and 1st in Kigali for Most Stationary, with 1,418.89383496292 Days.
