The Rolling Rainbow Hills of Kophee23 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Baguette Aporticus with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 2.973 billion Kophee23ians 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 Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of OJ City. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kophee23ian economy, worth 230 trillion mugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 77,663 mugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, clergy do their best to cover up their old tattoos, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime is totally unknown. Kophee23's national animal is the kitty, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is caffeine.

Kophee23 is ranked 56,031st in the world and 7th in OrangeJuice for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 14,150.33 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
