The Dominion of Cooperovia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.106 billion Cooperovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cooperovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,111 trillion Dibbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 156,432 Dibbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime is totally unknown. Cooperovia's national animal is the Purple crested fruit eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cooperovia is ranked 207,076th in the world and 8,827th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -14.14 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
