The Circulating spoon of Cupofchar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Charlie Tibbs with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 2.984 billion Cupofcharians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large 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 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cupofcharian economy, worth 398 trillion tealeaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 133,610 tealeaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, lobster tastes best when it is red, and retired racing turn turtles are served truffles for breakfast. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.

Cupofchar is ranked 54,148th in the world and 1,788th in the West Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 157,276.83 Standard Monetary Units.
