The Dictatorship of Covoicotheval is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 285 million Covoicothevalians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Covoicothevalian economy, worth 14.3 trillion Guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 50,333 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, citizens tint their front windows to avoid starring in the 'TV Detector Patrol Unit' documentary, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Covoicotheval's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Covoicotheval is ranked 38,693rd in the world and 82nd in Conch Kingdom for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,588.66 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
