The People's Holy Empire of Cooperia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Autokrator Cooper with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ritual sacrifices, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.301 billion Cooperians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 4,545 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 341,758 Coopcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, Autokrator Cooper's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. 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 158,846th in the world and 4th in Regal Plains for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
