Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Richly Blended Peoples of Koffee is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Generalissimo Barista Espresso with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.335 billion Richly Blended Peopleses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Full City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Koffeean economy, worth an astonishing 27,178 trillion Cuppas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 867,342 Cuppas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,651,805 per year while the poor average 52,740, a ratio of 107 to 1.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Koffee's national animal is the Schrodingers Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Koffee is ranked 49th in the world and 2nd in Wysteria for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 20,767.05 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
