The Circulating spoon of Cupofchar is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mr Charlie Tibbs with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 6.21 billion Cupofcharians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darjeeling. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cupofcharian economy, worth 794 trillion tealeaves a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,876 tealeaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recently bereaved have plenty of time to mourn during their incarcerations, civil servants spend most their time carrying out risk assessments for paper cuts, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, and tourists aren't the only ones that talk about coming back from a trip. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cupofchar's national animal is the turn turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The grinning nostril.

Cupofchar is ranked 127,592nd in the world and 3,474th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.67 on the Rand Index.
