The Copper Star

Population227 million

AnimalCactus Wren

The Federal Republic of The Copper Star is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 227 million Arizonans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.0%.

The Copper Starian economy, worth 13.0 trillion Coppers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,301 Coppers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime is relatively low. The Copper Star's national animal is the Cactus Wren, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Copper Star is ranked 185,160th in the world and 80th in Texas for Most Extreme, scoring 15.8 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
