The People's Holy Empire of Cooperia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Autokrator Cooper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.165 billion Cooperians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Coopersburg. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cooperian economy, worth a remarkable 4,474 trillion Coopcoins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched 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 an amazing 339,891 Coopcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, and the clergy of Orthodox Cooperism remains a single-sex institution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cooperia's national animal is the Cooperian Black Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Cooperism.

Cooperia is ranked 158,913th in the world and 2nd in Regal Plains for Most Armed, with 0.27 Weapons Per Person.
