The PS2 Puppet of Copercia is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.804 billion Copercians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The large but stagnant Copercian economy, worth 133 trillion Coperciums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 9,656 Coperciums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Copercia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Copercia's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is a major religion.

Copercia is ranked 2,727th in the world and 79th in the South Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 48.36 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
