The Libertarian Aristocracy of Sheepcote is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.94 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 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cote economy, worth 762 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 128,297 Cotean Crats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Sheepcote after the ban on emigration was lifted, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. 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 15,389th in the world and 102nd in Capitalist Paradise for Fattest Citizens, with 16.21 Obesity Rate.
