The Copper States

Population894 million

LeaderCaussi Caulicarrot Camillot


The Scientocratic Oligarchy of The Copper States is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Caussi Caulicarrot Camillot with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 894 million Copper Statesians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venstradam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Copper Statesian economy, worth 97.4 trillion doleuros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 108,990 doleuros, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, there's a bright dawn ahead for The Copper States, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown. The Copper States's national animal is the human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Copper States is ranked 100,526th in the world and 2,572nd in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 50.48 on the Hayek Index.
