The Libertarian Aristocracy of Sheepcote is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.518 billion Cotes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ewela. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cote economy, worth 689 trillion Cotean Crats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 124,961 Cotean Crats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, racehorses move a lot slower these days, and rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sheepcote's national animal is the Cotean Butterfly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sheepcote is ranked 165,607th in the world and 176th in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.24 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
