The Project Mayhem of Cuuldere is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lucy Hawk with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The humorless population of 4.862 billion Aliens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batman. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cuulderean economy, worth 686 trillion Bottle caps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,101 Bottle caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, and soldiers are issued comics about superheroes punching unflattering caricatures of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cuuldere's national animal is the Chata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shamanism.

Cuuldere is ranked 6,894th in the world and 304th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,051.6 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
