The Citizen's Free Association of The Co-Prosperity-Sphere is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Corporations with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.588 billion billionaires enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertá. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient billionaire economy, worth a remarkable 1,976 trillion Dogecoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 230,182 Dogecoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,111,591 per year while the poor average 2,644, a ratio of 798 to 1.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across The Co-Prosperity-Sphere, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Co-Prosperity-Sphere's national animal is the Homeless, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tax Evasion.

The Co-Prosperity-Sphere is ranked 77,105th in the world and 52nd in Lands End for Most Stationary, with 315.53158278188 days.
