Population2.023 billion

LeaderKing Andre


The Kingdom of Kouper is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Andre with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 2.023 billion Kouperians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gyejua. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kouperian economy, worth 97.8 trillion koups a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 48,320 koups, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and the nation continues to depend on foreigners for food. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kouper's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kouper is ranked 28,942nd in the world and 77th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,318.25 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
