The Gayboys of Cooming is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.13 billion Coomingians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Coomingian economy, worth 202 trillion coom bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,922 coom bucks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,318,273 per year while the poor average 7,358, a ratio of 179 to 1.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Coomingian mussels the biggest in The North Pacific, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Cooming's national animal is the Coomer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cooming is ranked 35,067th in the world and 1,574th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,590.98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
