The Reflective Mirror of Cuppie is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cubbie the Budgie with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, avant-garde cinema, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.654 billion Cups are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Budgie National Park. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Cuppie economy, worth 333 trillion MirrorFriends a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,276 MirrorFriends, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Budgie National Park" t-shirts, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cuppie's national animal is the Cubbie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is whatever budgies believe.

Cuppie is ranked 96,599th in the world and 145th in Forest for Most Conservative, scoring 57.08 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
