The Dictatorship of Cool game nation is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by John Doherty with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6 billion Cool game nationians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cool game nation City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cool game nationian economy, worth a remarkable 2,648 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 441,397 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,516,925 per year while the poor average 94,184, a ratio of 16.1 to 1.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, the diplomatic corps stinks, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, and the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cool game nation's national animal is the Flamingo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Cthulhu.

Cool game nation is ranked 195th in the world and 11th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 48,143.32 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
