The Libertarian Aristocracy of Sheepcote is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.756 billion Cotes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ewela. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cote economy, worth 709 trillion Cotean Crats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 123,219 Cotean Crats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheepcote's national animal is the Cotean Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sheepcote is ranked 207,851st in the world and 181st in Capitalist Paradise for Most Beautiful Environments, with 275.49 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
